Mr Stuart's Track

Author: John Bailey

Category: Adult Non-Fiction, Australian History, Australian Explorers John McDouall Stuart led six expeditions into the centre of Australia and beyond, succeeding where others had failed to cross Australia south to north and return.

With meticulous research and the narrative skill of a first rate novelist, Bailey reveals the motives and consequences of this extraordinary exploring feat with easy readability.
