About the Book
With photographs taken in 2010 and quotes from the exporers' diaries, letters and reports, this is The Burke and Wills Story told in the explorers' own words. The at times harrowing account reveals how courage, ambition, and determination mixed with leadership tensions, bad luck and poor decisions to culminate in tragedy.
