Descripción

270pp, 6 maps. Or orange cloth in jacket. Corners slightly bumped, top edge dusted. Jacket has slight shelf wear at head and foot of spine, one tiny tear at bottom edge rear panel. Narratives of 3 explorers who in the year 1873-4 simultaneously and seperately attempted to cross the desert interior of Western Australia. These men were the first to discover this vast region, covering nearly half a continent. Giles, Forrest and Warburton struggled through burning unmapped solitudes in constant peril from thirst, starvation, hostile natives. Their records as well as being important in the history of Australia, are graphic and dramatic, with the suspense naturally inherent in the exploration of terra incognita intensified by the competition among between the three. Size: 8vo. N° de ref. de la librería 007406
