Set in Australia during the era of the Great Depression, Polio Epidemic and World War Two this is the true story of an adventurous little girl and her faithful companion.
Until she was 11, Roma was the Murray River Girl. She lived in a makeshift tent on the banks of the river with Teddy and her parents. Special friends included children of the Baakandji River People and she freely roamed the riverbank and bush with them.
The Murray River, Gypsies, travelling circuses, rabbit plagues and droughts all brought her many, sometimes hilarious adventures.
