Anzac Day with the Swans of Northam

by Elspeth Langford

Paintings by Catherine Gordon

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.
