By turns reflective, tragic and hilarious, Turn Left at the Devil Tree is the story of a visiting teacher in remote Aboriginal Australia. Accompanied by a ‘rough-tough hunting dog’ named Turkey, Derek Pugh founded several outstation schools in the most isolated parts of Arnhem Land.
Spending many years among the people and wildlife of the Top End of the Northern Territory, Derek Pugh reveled in the lifestyle and freedom of the bush and gained an insight into a traditional culture which has been witnessed by only a few outsiders. Told with respect and candor Turn Left at the Devil Tree is Pugh’s ‘slice of history’.
