CATCH UP WITH THE SUN is the unusual account of a remarkable achievement as ex-RAAF pilot and veterinarian, Heidi Douglas, who writes about her journey through the outback of Australia with horses and camels. She covers Victoria, NSW, Queensland, Western Australia and the Northern Territory. The journey (full of incidents and setbacks) is fascinating in itself, redefining what we think we know about the country - but the biggest surprise is that the animals steal the show! Who would have thought that a short fat horse with the name of Gumby and two haughty camels could win over the hearts of readers - and convince us that this story is really all about them ...and Heidi just tagged along for the ride!? Heidi meets a range of interesting characters along the way and gets herself in and out of some hairy situations. She has a wonderful dry, laconic sense of humour and displays a never give up attitude, balanced by moments of self-doubt and vulnerability. This is the story of a woman's solo achievement and, as such, will appeal to a broad readership, including animal lovers, armchair travellers and all those who wonder just what it would be like to travel through the Outback.
