During my college years, we used to study this book called "Walkabout", by James Vance Marshall. It was about an aborigine boy on his Walkabout - a coming of age challenge for boys, and a chance to prove that he is capable of surviving and becoming a man - who stumbled upon Mary and Peter, brother and sister who were survivors of a plane crash in the middle of the Australian desert. He helped them survive, only to die himself from a simple flu.
So sad, yet so inspiring. The book kinda stuck with me for a long time. So when i saw this Aborigine magnet, i had to have it. No questions asked.
