Writing alternate chapters, the authors chronicle their eight-month trip in a four-wheel-drive jeep through the seemingly untameable Australian frontier, which includes Western Australia, Queensland, and the Northern Territory. Most of this entertaining and well-written book consists of conversations with vivid charactersstockmen, aborigines, "roo" hunters, bushrangers, pioneers, escapists, and lunatics. The humor, the resilience and "mateship" of these free-spirited frontiersmen is evident throughout the book: "unforgettable people in an unforgiving land." Recommended. Judith M. Nixon, Purdue Univ. Lib., W. Lafayette, Ind.
