Publisher's Summary

It's 1969, and a remote coastal town in Western Australia is poised to play a pivotal part in the moon landing. Radar technician Evan Johnson and his colleagues stare at a grainy screen, transfixed, as Armstrong takes that first small step. 

I was in my cage, of course, unheard, underestimated, biscuit crumbs on my beak. But fate is a curious thing. For just as Evan's story is about to end, my story prepares to take flight.

Quirky Ausie Tale

Unique and observant perspective of WA coastal town, recreating characters and life during the man walks on moon era and the effect of the satelite dish there. Excellent entertainment.

Great storytelling

Loved all the details brought back of an era I lived through. Insightful of humanity and bird.
