Red Earth Diaries: A Migrant Couple's Backpacking Adventures in Australia is a work of non-fiction that focuses on travel, culture and memoir, and was penned by author Jason Rebello. A concise but comprehensive read with plenty of adventure from cover to cover, this is the unique tale of how a couple with very little to their name migrated to Australia with the dreams of crafting a new life in a new country. What results is an incredible story of their initial backpacking odyssey as they fall in love with the country and its many wonderful characters, and the story of how this inspires them to set up their new lives and thrive in a brand new environment of hope.
Author Jason Rebello brings together many different genres and influences of non-fiction to provide an educational and entertaining work. In terms of a memoir, this is a truly inspiring tale of migrants coming from India with dreams of a totally different life, and this element is narrated tenderly and with great attention to detail in the prose. For readers looking to travel to Australia in the future, the book provides a great overview of the culture and history of many different places across the country, with enticing local details and personal reactions to the learning experience. And in between all this is a truly exciting tale of exploration and inspiration. Overall, I would definitely recommend Red Earth Diaries to fans of travel writing and inspirational memoirs everywhere.
