The Lost Boy

Author(s): Robert Wainwright

Australian Reference

This journalistic book relates one of the most gripping news events in Australia in 1993—the disappearance of 8-year-old Clinton Liebelt in the outback. A reporter who originally covered the incident revisits this compelling mystery and shares the uplifting story of how one child's tragic disappearance united an entire community. Based on personal interviews, newspaper articles, and oral history, a compelling picture emerges of the more than 1,000 volunteers who united in an effort to save a young life.
