It's Anzac Day morning. The swans and school kids meet on a country riverbank. The swans have a story to tell about their brave ancestors and the children also have a story to tell about their soldier ancestor. As the day unfolds, the swans and young humans realise that both their stories of survival in wartime come together in a way they’ll never forget.
“It is a very attractive presentation of a fine Anzac story.”
— Professor Daniel Reynaud, Historian, Avondale University (NSW).
“... this was a fantastic read. The nature of wartime heroism and damage that warfare can cause [is] touched upon masterfully. Catherine Gordon also deserves congratulations for her excellent, skilful artwork which complements [the] writing beautifully.”
— David Templeman MLA, WA Minister for Culture and Arts; Sport and Recreation; International Education; Heritage
"Congratulations on the publication of 'Anzac Day with the Swans of Northam'. ... It is simply magnificent!"
— Celia Hammond, Former Federal Member of Parliament.
