The Beginnings of a New Book

I started on a new book this morning; an adventure based upon the true story of a family emigrating to Australia in 1964, leaving a cold English winter to arrive in Fremantle, Western Australia during a summer heatwave. They traveled 1200 miles north of Perth to settle in the tiny, remote town of Port Hedland, where they stayed for 5 years.

A few years ago, my Dad wrote his account of our families first 5 years in Australia; it's an extraordinary story of courage and endeavor. I'm going to weave my recollections, as a 8 year old boy, into his. The 2 different perspectives provide an unusual and entertaining insight into the adventure.

The genre is Historical Fiction, with the events of Port Hedland's boom, as an iron ore export port, and its remote location featured.
