Learn how to be an explorer in your own backyard! Would you know how to find water and food, collect plants, make a shelter-and stay alive-if you were out in the bush? As you delve into this book full of the adventures of the European explorers of Australia, you will experience with them their many challenges, such as finding their way, mapping an area, trapping animals and coping with drought. All the old favourites are here-James Cook, John Oxley, Hamilton Hume, Edward John Eyre, Ludwig Leichhardt, Robert O'Hara Burke and William John Wills, and others who are less well-known. Theirs are stories not only of tragedy, conflict and death, but also of loyalty, amazing perseverance and wonder over the new animals and landscapes they encountered.
