Victor Krylko, along with his family, survives the horrors of war-torn Europe and finds himself on a ship to Australia with hopes and dreams of a
new, peaceful life. While his parents and sister eventually find the niche they crave, Victor’s journey of survival and self-discovery continues. He travels through Australia’s red centre and across the sea to Malaysia and Vietnam. Victor experiences the
earthy characters that shaped a nation, sees both the brutality and the integrity of Malaysian pirates,
becomes a key figure in commando actions of prewar Vietnam, and finds himself living with a remote tribe of native Australians. An epic adventure tome, Victor’s story is breathtaking in its scope, as he experiences the vast range of human conditions in both peacetime and war.
