The text is illustrated with maps and the very occasional black-and-white illustration. 1/4 chocolate brown coloured cloth covered back strip with gilt coloured titles. 3/4 rust coloured boards with publisher's self embossed logo to the lower right hand corner of the front panel.

The authors were given an assignment to track down the scourge of tropical north Australia – the saltwater crocodile (a 'salty'). The crocodile itself proved elusive, but, they found a different subject – the people who actually live in a vast, unforgiving landscape. For, as the front fold over blurb states "... Greater Nowheres is a travel book like no other, a tribute to a remarkable collection of individuals who have left every form of comfort behind to gain wealth, fame, or simply peace of mind in the unforgiving landscape of the Outback." Softening of the back strip edges with rubbing of the book corners. Faint foxing to the text block edges. A little rubbing of the dustwrapper edges and panels with fading of the back strip. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. [8], IX - XIX, [5], 3 - earth 313, [1] pages,. Please refer to accompanying picture (s). Illustrator: Maps and Illustrations. Quantity Available: 1.
