US Kirkus Review » A re-issue of James Vance Marshall's "minor classic" - this small book which appeared on another list in 1961 and tells of two young castaways in the desolate Australian Northern Territory. Although he has replicated this experience in later works, they have never achieved the concentrated effectiveness of this one. No illustrations (remembering the original, a good thing) and synchronized with motion picture appearance. (Kirkus Reviews)
