Visually stunning read of a 4WD journey though the Australian desert. Campfires under immense star field backdrop. The desert is the great heart of Australia. Some people think of deserts with affection and awe and others with dread. Yet most people have never been to the desert. Waiting for them are majestic sunsets, and nights around the campfire under the sizzling clear stars where the immensity touches the soul. The power of the desert is something humans have known for thousands of years but have lost in the concrete busyness of modern urban lift. This books helps us rediscover that beauty. In this book you will travel for a week in the desert with Ian and fellow travelers and follow the explorers and the Aboriginal custodians into a transforming place. The stories resonate. Writing in a distinctive Australian context and accent, Ian challenges us to journey physically and spiritually from the edges to the heartland, from superficiality to depth.
