Back in another adventure as an environmental activist, Kyle (Antarctica's Frozen Chosen) is working undercover to try and discover whether a local helicopter pilot is bringing illegal germs into the Northern Territory.

Kyle finds the Territory culture has a unique perspective on and attitude towards many things and fitting in isn't as easy as he expected. Then there are the local characters: they can be quite aggressively defensive of their chosen lifestyle - especially if they suspect a nosy southerner is asking too many of the wrong sorts of questions. Throw in the ubiquitous crocodile attacks and a few human ‘ferals' and Kyle realises Antarctica is not the only place for adventures.

Gifted children vary a lot. Some are great at sports. Some have disabilities. Children can be gifted or not along one or more of a large number of dimensions. Labels like "gifted" need to be used carefully as all children are different.
