"Jem's world has been turned upside down--and it's about to get a lot worse. His great-aunt Ella, who's also a solo, round-the-world sailor, is moving in and decides to take Jem, his sister Maddy and his brother Tyler, with her on an adventure across the great blue sea. Plagued by seasickness and left wondering what mystery Ella seems to be chasing across the water, Jem begins having strange and troubling dreams. Could they be linked to the stranger stalking them as they continue on their quest?"--

Castaway : a Brumby Plains adventure by Joanne Van Os( Book )
3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Brumby Plains is an isolated place, and the outside world doesn't intrude much here. But when Sam and George discover a refugee child washed up on the shores of their buffalo station, the rest of the world is brought a lot closer. An accident has taken Mac and Sarah far away, and Uncle Mungo has strong views about refugees, so the two brothers hide the child while they work out what to do. Sam discovers that it's a lot harder to stand up for what you believe in than to follow the crowd
Brumby plains by Joanne Van Os( )
3 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Sam and George, 13 and 11, live at Brumby Plains, their parents' sprawling buffalo station in the Northern Territory. They're counting down to the Christmas holidays, and anticipating the fun they'll have exploring the property, horse riding, and spending time with their cousins Tess and Darcy. But weird things are happening at Brumby Plains - who is leaving the gates open, and why did a plane land in darkness in a deserted area? A chance encounter with an Englishman who knows more than he's letting on leaves Sam suspicious, but all their worries are forgotten as the four kids find a spooky cave up in the hills. Vincent, their old Aboriginal friend, says they shouldn't go there - he says it's a dangerous place, full of angry spirits. Surely there's no harm in exploring, though - is there?
