Ruby doesn't like working for the Nortons. She wants to go back to Alice Springs to live with her mum. Will Idris, the Afghan boy who works with the camels, help her to return home?

  • Kirsty Murray's story vividly evokes life in central Australia at the turn of the twentieth century.
  • A great resource for teachers to use for both the SOSE and English curriculum. The title is supported online with a synopsis, discussion questions, and classroom activities, including reproducible worksheets.

The Red Camel was inspired by a photograph of camels and their driver taken by Herbert Basedow in Oodnadatta in 1903. This photograph is now part of the National Museum of Australia's collection.
