Grāmatas apraksts no Goodreads/Synopsis from Goodreads:
WALKABOUT (book 3)
Billy leaves his family and the bush for the first time ever, but wolf-whistles and abuse leave him confused about the appeal of his bare bum. A friendly trucker named Turbo, teaches him that he won’t pick up any girls wearing a bright red sundress. And he nearly runs back home after a gruesome discovery in a barrel at the tip. He calls upon his ancestors for help with shocking results, and he’s forced to fight off a mongrel old man in a violent confrontation. A darkened alley full of rats in the city reveals a beautiful girl. Amber’s pyjamas are covered in mud and blood and she’s stained in tears, and Billy falls in love.
“It was such a fun and entertaining adventure story. Great gross-out scenes that I loved from the first book. I loved the Aussie lingo. The humor had me laughing out loud in places.” Jessica B, USA
“This writer has done something rare – he’s come up with something so original that I can’t even compare it to other books. It stands alone. And his humour is really sensational.” Jack S, Australia
“Can’t wait for the next in the series as I couldn’t put it down. They really are good value.” Ann C, UK
URBAN HUNTERS is laugh–out–loud, gut–churning, heart–wrenching storytelling at its best. Unlike anything you’ve ever read, in typical Taaffe fashion. Hilarious as usual. Always surprising. Wonderful!

Mana recenzija/My review
Billija piedzīvojumi plašajā pasaulē ārpus pazīstamās teritorijas, gan prieku nesoši, gan arī ar asarām esoši.
Pāris komisku situāciju rodas, kamēr kāds Billijam paskaidro, ka vajadzīgas bikses un nepietiek tikai ar apsēju~, kas nosedz priekšpusi. : ) Šis tēls nav vienīgais ar pretimnākošu attieksmi, bet netrūkst arī tādu, kas izsmej.
Billijs nokļūst pilsētā, turklāt ne kurā katrā, bet pašā Sidnejā. Tur viņš no drošas nāves izglābj trīs kucēnus, kuri vairs neuzdrošinās palikt pārāk tālu no sava varoņa.
Kā viens no pašiem galvenākajiem uzdevumiem, dodoties ceļojumā, Billijs no ciltsbrāļiem saņēma uzdevumu atrast ciemam meitenes/sievas (vēlams daudzskaitlīgi), jo ciltī palikuši vien vīrieši. Tā arī noslēdzas trešā Urban Hunters grāmata, kad Billijs neparastā veidā šķērsielā sastop vienu tādu radību.
Billy’s adventures in the big wide world outside his known territory, there both happy, cheerful moments and sad moments.
Few comical scenes emerge until someone explains to Billy that he should wear pants and it’s not enough with covered front. That and other characters are forthcoming and helpful but there also plenty of those that laugh at the boy.
Billy finds his way to a city and not just any city but Sidney itself. There he saves three puppies from definite death, which after that don’t stay far away from their hero.
As one of the main tasks for Billy during his walkabout from his tribe was to find and bring home girls/women because only men are left in the tribe. And that’s how the third book in Urban Hunters series ends as Billy finds one of these creatures in a very unusual way.
