David Laing’s novels, Forest Spirit, Forest Shadows and Forest Secrets, are drawn from his experiences gained teaching Aboriginal children and mixing with their parents and the general bush community. Based on these experiences, he has created a young Aboriginal girl, who finds herself involved in a series of exciting Tasmanian adventures.
A rhotosaurus, a phantom kid, a ghost mountain and a Bushman Extraordinaire, called Reginald Blowhard, all come together to form David Laings latest tale, Forest Secrets, the third book in the trilogy for young adults. The protaginist is a young Aboriginal girl called Jars, who, along with her faithful dog, Shadow and her tearaway cousin, Snook, embark on an adventure neither will forget.
