Thirsty travelers Sept. 21 2011
By Gregory Hope - Published on
Format: Hardcover
If nothing else, reading this book will give one a proper appreciation for the availability of clean drinking water. The book provides a broad overview of the history and character of the men who explored the Australian Outback. The author admits in his introduction that the maps included are sub-par and as a reader not overly familiar with the geography of Australia I couldn't agree more. I found this lack to be a great hindrance to following the accounts retold here. This book is worthwhile as an introduction to the subject but I would reccomend Alan Moorehead's "Cooper's Creek" for a more detailed and riveting account.
