Summary "[The book] takes us on a journey with an eleven year old boy and his pony called Joe. Together they travel through the thick forests of Tasmania to deliver mail to the town of Wielangta after school. This was to be the boy's last summer delivering mail, before a series of bushfires ravaged the area and the town was finally abandoned. Set during the 1920's, this fictional story, along with the richly evocative paintings, archival photographs and snippets of correspondence, creates a vivid historical portrait of the hardships and joys of living and working in a timber town in Tasmania during the early decades of the twentieth century." - Back cover
