"Combing the heroic, the tragic, the bizarre & the humorous, this book leads the reader along the intriguing highways & byways of Australian exploration. These ripping yarns provide the kind of detailed insight that our history class never gave us into the character & deeds of the brave men - and women - who mapped the continent the dreadful risks they took, why they did it, & how they managed to survive (or not). Impeccably researched & featuring many extracts from explorers' diaries & letters, it is packed with fascinating details about the character, experiences, motovations & tools of the trade of Australian colonial explorers."
