KEATS, MICHAEL AND BRIAN FOX - The Gardens of Stone National Park and beyond  Book 1: Bushwalks in the North West section, including Mugii Murum-ban (Mount Airly - Genowlan) mesas; plus regional Geology and Geomorphology

Title: The Gardens of Stone National Park and beyond Book 1: Bushwalks in the North West section, including Mugii Murum-ban (Mount Airly - Genowlan) mesas; plus regional Geology and Geomorphology
Description: Keats Holdings Pty. Ltd., Pymble, NSW, Australia, 2011. Octavo; paperback; 400pp., with maps and many full-colour illustrations. New. After their success with "The Passes of Narrow Neck", the authors team up once more, this time to explore the area known as the Gardens of Stone National Park, north of Lithgow in NSW, and its surrounding region. The area they take us adventuring through is replete with strangely-formed rock pagodas and other twisty stone formations, upon which a fevered (and Classically-trained) mind has conferred such names as the Poseidon Arena, Hades and the Underworld, and Hecate's Cauldron. As usual with these authors' works, the trails (a word used here in its broadest sense) are presented by means of diarised extracts, showing the experiences of the authors and their Bush Club associates during their own explorations. Infused with a wealth of local history and a wide knowledge of the local fauna and flora, the guide provides a prospective walker with enough information to set out on their own travels. Don't be fooled however: these treks are not for lightweight bushwalkers and some serious preparation is warranted! That being said, the information is well-presented and fascinating, so if you use the the book to plan an expedition into the unknown, or simply to fill in a few hours before the fireplace with a cup of tea, there's something here for all comers.
