That Boy Jack by Janeen Brian

I have the honour of launching Janeen Brian's new children's novel That Boy Jack during Kernewek Lowender at the Kadina Library on 23 May 2013 at 11a.m. That Boy Jack is set in Moonta in the nineteenth century during the heyday of the mines.

Best friends Jack and Gilbert make a pact to work in the mines together. Now Jack is twelve he wants to keep his word but he has discovered an unusual fear that he didn't know he had. He must find the courage to choose which path to take.

At last we have an historical novel for children that shows the great contribution that the Cornish made to Australia.
