Mid Grade - Taconi and Claude-Double Trouble
by Margot Finke
This is a coming of age adventure set on a cattle station in the unforgiving Australian outback. Young aboriginal boy Taconi has important decisions to make.
A crazy Dad, and fear of his upcoming Man Ceremony dog his days and nights. What will the Medicine Man do? Will Taconi find the blue Kingfisher feather that he is sure will solve ALL his problems?
And what about the Dreamtime Spirits? They have plans of their own for him. And all the while, his mate, Claude, a sulfur crested cockatoo, offers chatty one liners of advice and wisdom.
Set in the Aussie outback of 1950, the story takes you on a breathtaking trip into the life of a young aboriginal boy looking to find his true path in life, and finding himself straddling two cultures.
