While helping his family operate a paddle steamer along the Murray River in Australia during the 1860s, thirteen-year-old Patrick gets into serious trouble because of his friend.
"I don't care what you tell them, as long as you get these...these things off my boat!"
Thirteen-year-old Patrick McWaid stopped to listen to the man's complaints drifting down the wide, brown Murray River. He mopped the sweat from his brow and dropped one more wooden crate on the rear deck of his family's paddle steamer, the Lady Elisabeth. His sister, Becky, and their younger brother, Michael, also paused.
Publisher Book Description:
Don't miss Panic at Emu Flat the thrilling conclusion to the popular series, ADVENTURES DOWN UNDER! Patrick McWaid has just turned fourteen but that doesn't mean life has gotten any easier aboard the family's paddle steamer. Take a trip to the other side of the world and you'll learn how crazy life can be for Patrick and his friends.
First, there's a boatload of ostriches. Then there's the possibility that Patrick's father might move the whole family to take a job back in Ireland. On top of that, there's the Bible-quoting Miss Perlmutter with her dozens of mysterious barrels. Finally, there's the fact that Patrick is sure his good friend, Jeff, is hiding a secret.
Determined to uncover the truth, Patrick has a rough altercation with a nasty bully and eventually find himself in real trouble. A hair-raising chase through the corridors of Collingwood Asylum is the climax of Patrick's quest-but will it lead to safety or to even greater danger?
