Raymond Boyd Dunn

Author Raymond Boyd Dunnabout this book: This book has a tenuous connection with the three novels of the Pearson/Rickards trilogy, in that it features a sixth generation of the Rickards family, Billy Rickards. Billy is travelling from Toowoomba in Queensland to Darwin in the Northern Territory - the long way. He travels by bus east to Brisbane, by plane south to Sydney in New South Wales, and thence by rail west to Adelaide in South Australia, north through Alice Springs in central Australia, and continuing north to Darwin. I travelled on the Indian Pacific and the Ghan at the times described, and it was this experience which prompted me to write a fictional story involving Billy, and including his pursuit of the delectable Zoe. In designing the cover, I kept it as simple as possible, and besides the photograph of the train, I tried to convey the red emptiness of the Australian central desert. This is a short story of 22,700 words which should appeal to the romantics of train travel.
