In Australia in 1868, twelve-year-old Patrick continues to search for his missing father, who has been convicted of a crime he did not commit and has been forced into hiding out in the bush.
Patrick McWaid closed his eyes, but it only made his stomach feel worse. He gripped the sides of the tiny wooden wheelbarrow and tried not to look at the river twenty feet below, wondering how he had been talked into being pushed across the Murray River on a tightrope.
Publisher Book Description:
The Deadly River Has Them Trapped-.
The continuing search for his missing father has Patrick McWaid discouraged. Even news of the circus coming to town fails to lift Patrick's spirits. But when the circus barges have an accident on the river, tumbling all the animals into the water, the possibility of tigers on the loose has Patrick worried about John McWaid's safety!
Then their grandfather's paddle steamer is chosen to give the visiting Prince Alfred, duke of Edinburgh, a tour of the river and the famous Barmah eucalyptus forest, and Patrick and Becky ride along. But the heavy winter rains have made the river extremely dangerous, threatening to capsize the boat. Will Patrick and the others reach safety before it's too late?
