Spirits of the Ghan / Judy Nunn / 381 pages
I bought this book in Australia when my Nook was fried. It is set in Australia and recounts the surveying and construction of the Great Ghan Railroad that traversed the wilds of the Australian Outback. Miss Nunn has done an outstanding job of portraying the beauty, the history, the traditions, and the native people of this vast land. The past impacts the present, and it takes the melding of two cultures to right an ancient wrong.
