Quick Overview

.
The author draws the reader into Sturt’s 1844 expedition thrusting towards the Red Centre by quoting freely from eyewitness accounts. You ride into the fierce, blazing deserts with them, feel what they felt and picture what they saw. It has been carefully researched from original material that is cluttered by a great deal of extraneous detail. The author highlights important details missed by other writers, such as the progressive influence of scurvy on the personalities of the leaders and Browne’s conjecture that Lake Torrens was not a single lake at all. Rudolph gives an empathetic account of the men, one that appreciates their courage and achievements, while not glossing over their weaknesses. A readable book for all Australians: the man or woman in the street, in the bush and on properties. First published in 2006
