Ron Brown is a man with a tale to tell. Fortunately, he shared an interest in Australian history with Pat Studdy-Clift. Together they spent many happy days of collaboration when Ron told to her his experiences in the Red Heart of Australia, where he was known and loved as "Brownie of the Finke".
His stories cover the transition period from 1945 to 1952 when he was the last of the Central Australian Police Camel Patrolmen emerging into a new age. As a lone representative of the white man's law and mediator in many a tribal feud, he patrolled a police district larger than the state of Victoria. S/cover. 236pp.
