My Australian story
Summary I dropped to the ground. I could see nothing until lightning flashed. I started crawling towards the bottom of the stairs where I'd last seen Dad. Something slammed into my side and I hit the ground. My hip was hurting like crazy, but I went on, sliding like a snake When I lifted my head and tried to see where I was, the rain and mud splashed into my eyes, making it almost impossible to see. Ryan and his best friend, Nev, both love fishing. They spend all their spare time at the wharf or out on Darwin Harbor fishing for trevally and barra, and keeping an eye on local weather and tides. But when Ryan makes a new friend, his father is not pleased. Troubles with his dad are nothing compared to what lies ahead Cyclone Tracy, which devastated Darwin on Christmas Eve, 1974
