With Dew on my Boots is a rich evocation of the childhood of Colin Thiele, who has delighted generations of Australian children for years. A fascinating account of what it was like to grow up at a particular time and place: the predominately German-speaking farming community of Eudunda, just north of the Barossa Valley, in the 1920s and 30s. With Dew on my Boots is instilled with Colin's characteristic warmth, humour and wisdom.
Other Footprints traces moments in Colin s life beyond the early years. During his many journeys across the length and breadth of Australia with his wife, Rhonda, he delighted in encounters with people of all ages in cities, country towns and microscopic dots on outback maps , as well as with wildlife and the land itself.
