Description

This vivid, perceptive account follows Robert Burke and William Wills on a journey through the unexplored Australian continent of 1860. With high expectations and rousing courage, the two set off on a dangerous trip across 1,500 miles of unmapped desert wilderness. Their story, with its extraordinary conditions and tragic ending, is a testament to the human ability to endure against all odds.
