Book 9 - The mishap
The story continues and in Books 9………….
Spike and the Pukes fail to come home and in Book 9 we find our why. The fishing was good but Luke gets himself into trouble by swinging out on
a tree rope which snaps and he falls into the river.
There is a rescue but all is not well, and Luke caught his foot in a rock and it has swollen and is very red. He cannot walk, so they decide to stay
in the bush and make camp for the night. The next day the plan is to make a stretcher and carry Luke back to the shed.
