'Dream Road, A journey of Discovery is a book of many journeys. It should not be read as history but as Percy Trezise, his story. It tells of exploration into the physical and mythological landscapes of southeastern Cape York. Already fascinated by glimpses of the rock paintings near Laura, Trezise used his aerial perspective as an Ansett Airlines pilot, flying across Cape York Peninsula, to note patterns in the vegetation that might indicate permanent waterholes and rock shelters that might contain paintings. He marked his navigation maps and returned to explore the country by four-wheel drive, on foot or with pack horses.' (Introduction)
