The Aborigines of Western Australia by Albert F. Calvert. ANY attempt to fathom the depth of mystery which surrounds the history of the Australian Aboriginal must necessarily be--in the main--a... More > failure. The subject is surrounded with difficulty. Captain Dampier was the first Englishman known to have made the acquaintance of the Australian natives, whom he calls "the poor winking people of New Holland, the miserablest people on earth," and so forth. During the intervening two centuries we have not added much to our knowledge regarding them. They have no written language, and are forbidden to speak of the dead: two serious obstacles to research.

Narrative of an Expedition Into Central Australia By Charles Sturt

More > dreary and monotonous wastes I have been describing, to the contemplation of fairer and more varied scenes. My weary task has been performed, and however uninteresting my narrative may have proved to the general reader, I would yet hope, that those who shall hereafter enter the field of Australian discovery, will profit from my experience, and be spared many of the inconveniences and sufferings to which I was unavoidably exposed. They may rest assured, that it is only by steady perseverance and unceasing attention, by due precaution and a mild discipline, that they will succeed in such an undertaking as that in which I was engaged.

eBook (ePub): $2.99
One of the world’s greatest adventures, illustrated by more than 200 photos and maps. Jack and Jude explore their homeland of Australia, an ancient country filled with beauty and dangers. Jack... More > and Jude have traveled the remoter parts of Earth for more than 40 years. When young, a honeymoon trek from England to South Africa brought them to Australia in 1969 where they homebuilt a yacht while starting a family. This took 3 years of really hard work. Climbing aboard, they grabbed the dream of sharing nature and adventure with their children. In ever-increasing circles they explored Earth, touching 80 countries in 16 years while they boat-schooled their sons to the final year of high school.
