The Simpson Desert occupies about 160,000 square kilometres of the arid centre of Australia. Aboriginal people have lived there for thousands of years, and the early Europeans attempted in vain to traverse it. In 1936 Edmund (Ted) Colson and his aboriginal companion Peter Ains made a successful crossing.

This book contains the journal and field notes made daily by Colson on this epic journey, a talk he gave to the SA Branch Royal Geographical Society on his return.

Introduction by Valmai Hankel. Additional material by Dennis Hall. There are also maps and photos.
