Swan SongBook - 2005
Mitch lives with his ranger father in the beautiful Coorong National Park in South Australia and often helps his father with his work protecting the wildlife, especially the waterbirds, of the region. One day Mitch finds an abandoned swan's egg and takes it home, despite his father's disapproval. When the cygnet hatches, Mitch names it Bugle and it grows up to become his closest friend and constant companion. Australia's most distinguished writer for children, Colin Thiele's books, including the multi-award-winning Storm Boy, The Sun on the Stubble and Blue Fin, have won numerous Australian and international awards and have been made into many classic films, TV series, plays and picture books.
