The Australian Outback

First edition - ISBN 1-84728-584-8 - 328 pages - 31 Illustrations - 6in x 9in paperback - Graphic design by Robin Bell

The Australian Outback has an environment so harsh that NASA is using it to test space suits for a mission to Mars. This is where the explorer Charles Sturt watched his thermometer burst as the temperature exceeded 127 degrees Fahrenheit. Central Australia is rapidly becoming known as the extinction capital, where over half the known mammal species became extinct in less than one hundred years of European settlement. This is a landscape that can take your breath away with its harsh beauty. This is the Australian Outback

Take a journey beyond the bustling cities through the history, exploration, culture, traditions and lifestyle of the Outback of the 2000 Olympics host country, from pre-history to tomorrow.
