During his long trip across the Australian desert, Bertie is separated from Jessie, his owner, and has exciting and dangerous adventures with a cameleer, a snake and a hawk before a happy reunion. The picture book highlights Australia’s cameleers, mostly of Muslim faith, who were an important part of Australia’s history with these details included at the back of the book.
