AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Kelly re-creates the nineteenth-century journeys of land explorers through the Tanami desert. The journey, undertaken in 2002, entailed a 720 kilometre walk from the end-point of one of John McDouall Stuart's trips to the most south-westerly point reached on one of Augustus Charles Gregory's expeditions.
