Summary

The second book in the Yinti series. Yinti and the hunting dingo, Spinifex, walk out of the desert together and Yinti sees a white man for the first time: `Look at that kartiya,' whispered Yinti, giggling. `You can see the blood through his skin!' When the dingo, Spinifex, is taken from her mother, she expects to be killed. Instead she is adopted and becomes a prized hunting dog. She eventually accompanies her human family, including Yinti, on their journey through the Great Sandy Desert. When Yinti leaves the desert, Spinifex goes with him. Based on stories, told to Pat Lowe by Jimmy Pike, about a dog who lived with his family in the desert during the 1940s and early 1950s.
