A plane crashes in the vast Northern Territory of Australia,and the only survivors are two children from Charleston, SouthCarolina, on their way to visit their uncle in Adelaide. Maryand her younger brother Peter set out on foot, lost in the vast,hot Australian outback. They are saved by a chance meetingwith an Aboriginal boy on walkabout, who teaches them tofind food and water in the wilderness, but whom Mary can’tbring herself to trust.Though on the surfaceWalkaboutis an adventure story, darkerthemes lie just beneath. Peter’s innocent friendship with theAboriginal throws into relief Mary’s no longer childish anxiety,and together raise questions about how Aboriginal and Westernculture can meet. And in the vivid descriptions of the naturalworld, we realize that this story—a deep fairy tale in the spiritof Adalbert Stifter’sRock Crystal—must also be a story aboutthe closeness of death and the power of nature.

Lee Siegelis professor of religious studies at the University of Hawaii. He is the author of many books, includingLove in a Dead Language,Who Wrote the Book of Love?, andLove and the Incredibly Old Man, all published by the University of Chicago Press.
