Other characters hitchhike, crisscrossing the Australian continent, accepting lifts in trucks, cars, and vans with trees painted on them. They are running away from dysfunctional families- they are seeking adventure or just looking for work. There are women in transit and in transition—stepping out of the traditional role ascribed to them and onto an open road.

Plumbs writing is wonderfully evocative, and filled with luscious descriptions.
