Quick Overview

Author:               Douglas Lockwood

First published:  1964

Format:              Hardcover                Pages:  228 pages

All aboard for the Northern Territory!  This book runs express to Alice Springs (well ... almost) and then stops at all stations to Darwin (well ... almost).  It is a travel book with a difference - a brisk, breezy journey through the great northland by an author who knows it better, perhaps, than anyone.  The average tourist who visits the Centre and the Top End is apt to enthuse about the landscape ... the immensity of it all ... and the complex system of chasms, gorges, valleys, and rivers.  Douglas Lockwood discovers all this, too, and much more besides.  His scenic coach or car always stops for other passengers to get on - the people who live there, the Territorians who add the fourth dimension of flesh and blood to his narrative.

As he promises in the first chapter, this is not a verbal bus ride.  It is not a substitute for a Year Book or a tourist guide.  It is, rather, a delightful companion - whether to travel with or simply to keep you company in front of the fire on a winter night while you are induced to dream about sunchine in Free-and-Easy Land.
