AbstractHistoryArchive Description

This, the second article in 'Epics of the Bush', tells four stories of people lost in the Australian bush. The first is of the three Duff children aged nine, seven and five, who were lost for nine days. They were rescued by their father with the help of Aboriginal trackers after the children had wandered for more than fifteen miles. The second story is about Ned Corrigan who became lost whilst mustering and wandered for eleven days, finally happening on a settler's home. The third is about two men in Tasmania and the fourth tells of a woman who was helped by a train whistle.
