Psst! It's true! This is the best book on EXPLORERS you'll ever read! They struggled up mountains, trekked across deserts, marched through mudflats. Some found rivers, some lost themselves, others lost their tempers.
Could you have solved the Riddle of the Rivers like Sturt? Would you have crossed Australia waving a brass-handled sword like Leichhardt? On your next bushwalk, will you remember the frying pan? In this book you'll discover the marvellous men that mapped Australia: the brave, the bold, the famous and the foolish. Mesmerise your mates with ace adventures and extreme exploits.
For children aged 8-12
