- The fifth book in the Bush Boys series.
- It is about a family ignorant of the bush.
- The only way to make ends meet after the birth of their ninth child is for Max Lawson (decended from the explorer) to give up his Christian Bookshop in the suburb of Boxwatch and return to teaching high school maths at Galway Crags in the Wild Bush.
- A quarterly magazine called "Bush Boys Explorers", edited by Sue Elvis, a homeschooling mother of eight, is published quarterly and may be downloaded from www.cardinalnewman.com.au.
