Review:

Very tender, very touching, and sketched out with no sign of strain. The descriptions of the Australian bush are first-rate. ( New Statesman)

A deeply-felt book, filled with information about desert flora and fauna. ( Times Literary Supplement)

A small classic, pared down to the bare bones. many will not only enjoy it, but long remember it. ( New York Times)
