Set in Marree, Australia, 1884; this is the story of three Afghan cameleers as they set about delivering supplies along the Birdsville Track. It is a work of fiction, based on the people of the times, where prejudice was very much alive, many Afghans being treated poorly, not just for the colour of their skin, or their religious belief, but because of the expertise that the Afghan cameleers offered the Australian outback, taking the much desired work from many Australians. An in-depth look at the life of cameleers and the issues surrounding camel strings is brought into view, shedding a great amount of light on the subject of camels in the outback, opening the eyes of the reader as to the great work that camel strings performed during this time of expansion. Camels were able to out-work bullock teams and horses due to their abilities to adjust to a harsh land and the cameleers were no exception. Warning Kulinma!
