AbstractHistoryArchive Description

In 1931 Walter Gill and a friend embarked on an expedition to the Northern Territory to retrace the steps of Harold Lasseter who claimed to have found gold west of Alice Springs. Lasseter had become lost and was adopted by the Pitjantjatjara people but later died. This book is an account of the author's six week expedition by camel into an area west of Uluru and Mount Olga to find a little known tribe of Aborigines, who had never seen a white man before.
