Hardback large quarto, dustjacket, very good condition (in very good dustjacket), black & white & colour text-photos, minor foxing top edge, minor edgewear. Heavy (1.1 Kg), and extra postage may be requested to destinations outside Australia. 192 pp. First edition. A deep understanding of bushcraft paves our way as we journey with him across each Australian state, tracking eight tales of mystery, courage and desperate survival. Retraces the epic journeys of some of Australia's earliest bushmen, explorers, pioneers and convicts. Uncovers evidence that the survivors of a Dutch shipwreck on the West Australian coast in the early 1700s somehow established a community thousands of kilometres way in central Australia. He retells that most extreme of survival stories, the gruesome recourse to cannibalism by Alexander Pearce after escaping into the Tasmanian wilderness from the infamous Sarah Island prison in 1822. The stories unfold in landscapes ranging from the harsh dry interior to impenetrable coastal rainforests. ISBN: 0733305466.
