Beginning with his schooling and university education, Finger's detailed biography of Ludwig Leichhardt follows the explorer's arrival in Sydney in 1842 and his adaptation to a strange land.
The story of Leichhardt's three expeditions: the trek to Port Essington; the failure of Peak Range; and the final trek when the expedition party disappeared, are told.
This account draws on Leichhardt's letters, journals, logbooks and diaries.
