The liquid, they must have drugged me, thought Matt. He saw a man raising the spear high above. In a flash he thought of Kim but was unable to coordinate his thoughts or even turn his had to check on his friend. Everything became blurred. The spear came down, and he felt a sharp, piercing pain. This is the end... That was his last thought; after that, there was nothing.

Three Year 9 students perform a routine experiment in a school laboratory and travel thousands of years back in time, finding themselves in the middle of the Aboriginal Dreamtime. They land on a big rock in the prehistoric Australian outback.

They experience fear, tribal rituals and even death, all the while learning the ways of our indigenous ancestors. However, throughout their ordeal, the boys never stop thinking about their own time and ways to get back home.

Born in Poland, Ted Stephens migrated to Australia in the mid-sixties in the last century. His interests lie in architecture, mechanical engineering, astronomy and Aboriginal culture. He is also a keen observer of children’s behaviour. Ted is married with three grown-up children and has five grandchildren.
