This is the finest book I have read on the ill fated Burke and Wills Expedition of 1860-61. Together with the late Sarah Murgatroyd's, 'The Dig Tree' and Michael Cathcart's, 'Starvation in a land of Plenty', you have a near complete narrative. If you are seeking a intricate commentary on both the journey and as a means of following the route in current times that is meticulously researched, mapped, and illustrated, you can't miss with this exquisite publication. Another feature of this well laid out book is that you can dip in and out and still easily follow the narrative. Clearly the Author has been exacting in his historical research and applying this in a modern context with many helpful tips and wise advice. This is my go to book not only on the Expedition but as a journey through our harsh yet magnificent Outback. I cannot sing this publication's praises highly enough.
