Bruce Gall takes the reader on a 26,000-kilometre bus and train trip around Australia, exploring the nature of the country, its fascinating wildlife and stunning landscapes. We climb fire-spotting trees, look for rare animals, scale mountains, go bushwalking, explore national parks, brave wild weather and meet interesting backpackers- and a few local characters as well! We read Aboriginal legends, discover Australia's early Dutch and French connections, discuss climate change, and much more.
The author travels like Paul Theroux, with Bill Bryson's sense of humour, but tells his own story, crafting meticulous word pictures, delightful dialogue and humourous anedotes that will entertain to the very last page-vicarious travelling at its best.
