GUNDAGAI, JUNE 1852: Yarri and Jackey Jackey sat in the hollowed-out trunk of a huge, old gum tree on the top of Mount Parnassus. They looked down to Gundagai through the heavy rain. The river had swollen and the town was in trouble. But what could they do?

Paul Ashton started his career as a high school teacher and ended up a professor of public history at the University of Technology Sydney. Yarri is the third book in a series for children between the ages of 6 and 16.
