The often harsh and unforgiving Australian landscape was a far cry from what the early colonisers were used to, and it proved a daunting obstacle to settlement. However, a few brave - and at times foolhardy - men were determined to prove themselves equal to the challenge. AUSTRALIA'S GREAT EXPLORERS looks at the tragedies and triumphs of men such as Wentworth and Lawson, Hume and Hovell, Burke and Wills, Leichhardt and Strzelecki as they battled to conquer the Great Diving Range, find an elusive inland sea, and traverse the length and breadth of this great country. This book is part of Exisle Publishing's Little Red Books series.Every title in the Little Red Books series provides an overview of key events, people or places in Australian history.
