About the Book
This is a book borne from the heart because of my love for our outback. So much history that combines Aboriginal folklore with the history of our pioneers. These men and women connected the north with the south so that the wealth of the country could be realised. Without the Afghan cameleers our trade routes would not have been as functional as they were. And because of them "The Ghan" has now been immortalised into our outback culture. Enjoy a brief pictorial summary of our Great Australian Outback that my book provides.
