When Johnny Pascoe attempts to rescue a sick girl from the Tasmanian outback, his plane crashes, leaving him dangerously injured. Ronnie Clarke, who was trained by Pascoe, endeavours to fly a doctor in to help but this proves more difficult than he imagined.
As he waits overnight at Pascoe's house, preparing to try again the following day, Clarke revisits the past of this unusual man - and reveals the shocking and tragic secrets that have influenced his life.
Much is lost & found
This one has it all - a heroic & terrifying mountain top rescue, where once again, even if you thought you couldn’t care a less - he makes flying so exciting. A lifelong friendship is tested; two love stories for the same girl; and a lost family re-found. Again we learn more of the unbelievably tough life of the Australian outback. Why does that make for such compelling reading? Perhaps because at such a distance & with so few resources a mishap can become a life threatening predicament- which is just perfect for really good stories. What a wonderful story-teller he is.
