In Walkabout Year, Samuel Pickering, the professor who inspired the movie Dead Poets Society, provides an intimate, engaging chronicle of his familys year in Western Australia. The reader is pulled into Pickerings tight family circle and off on an intriguing trip to another land.With humor, skill, and insight, Pickering describes the educational system his three children experienced- the familys journeys from one area of the country to another as he lectured- and the people—both academics and nonacademics—he encountered.

He compares the flora, fauna, and economics to those in America, and reveals much else about daily life in a new country. As a result, Walkabout Year is part travelogue, part reflection on the differences between two cultures, and part autobiography. As Smithsonian stated, Pickering has created his own comfortable world, and it is always a pleasure to slip into his company for a time. Readers will feel a strong bond with the family and as if they too have been thoroughly exposed to the intriguing world of Australia.
