Australia's High Country is a place of amazing contrasts, from snow-covered peaks, deep glacial lakes, giant granite boulder fields and vibrant displays of blossoming alpine wild flowers. “AUSTRALIA- Beyond the Snow Gums” (published by Xlibris AU), written by author Elizabeth Harry, is a delightful children's adventure series that follow the joys and hardships of young native animals as they both discover and explore their surrounds in the alpine regions of Australia. Each story depicts a climatic theme with a lesson learnt on how to cope in Australia's ever-changing climate.
These stories take place in the shadows of Mount Kosciuszco, the highest mountain on the continent 2,228 metres above sea level. The main characters are Australian native animals only found in this region. Each has unique skills for surviving Australia's High Country, which they share with the reader as they adventure further and further from their little homes.
“AUSTRALIA-Beyond the Snow Gums” appeals to children's love of nature and sense of adventure. These children’s short stories are fast-paced with shorter sentence structures, making it easier to read. Each story is action-packed with elements of danger and suspense and are charged with the raw emotions of everyday problems that arise from living in the High Country. At the back of the book, there are educational notes on the native animals and their habitats used in the stories. The author hopes that through this book, readers will have an insight to Australia's magnificent country and remember to be aware, take care and keep in mind that its climate can change at the drop of a hat.
