Secondhand. Good condition. Wear to book corners and edges.
Hard work and adventure for the Gunbarrel Road Construction Party as they surveyed and built their last three highways across the deserts of Central Australia.
Len Beadell's team had to contend with flat tyres, broken gearboxes, and all the natural difficulties of the outback as they endeavoured to build three highways in one year!
On one forward reconnaissance, Beadell discovered a small group of Indigenous Australians who had never seen a white person and rediscovered two wells on the Canning Stock route.
These and many other outback adventures are retold in Beadell's lively and entertaining style. (publisher blurb)
