AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Examines a number of recent travel books that 'seek to discover ordinary Australia, and find, through encounters with Aboriginality, a place and culture that is far removed from either the stereotypes of the tourist brochures, or the friendly and quirky characters that inhabit the soap operas and films that have been recent exports of Australian popular culture' (115). The books under survey are Annie Caulfield's The Winner's Enclosure (1999), Mark McCrum's No Worries (1997), and Bill Bryson's Down Under (2000).
