How do you live in a world with no cars, no bras, and no sewage? Is life without TV possible? What do you order at the local deli if they don't sell chips, pies or Coke? Are you still sane if you want to go to bed at nine o'clock? It's weird being an alien in your own country! Sam, Shannon and Zak are not the world's keenest history students. But when a school camp takes them back to 1899, they have to learn things the hard way. Danger, fun and friendship are down the road as they begin to understand more about themselves, more about Australia's past, and what the future may hold.
