 HC book by Ion L. Idriess
" The Great Boomerang "
by Ion L. Idriess
With 50 Illustrations and 2 Maps
.................................
This powerful book of the Dead Heart country is rich in true life stories of the hardy people who battle
for a living round the fringe of this most mysterious area. 
This country of fierce dust storms and shimmering heat broke the hearts of our earliest explorers; its sands cover the bones of many an adventurer - "out where the dead men lie".  It is alost world, a dead world, intimidating in its desolation, its utter loneliness......
.............................................................................
Who was Idriess and what did he write about? -
Idriess led a life most could only dream about. The quintessential Australian, he inspired many and was instrumental in popularising Australian writing before it was considered viable. Even today his book on gold prospecting is sought after for its invaluable information. Reference to his Guerilla Series is made on US military sites. Idriess led an amazing life probably due to his passionate, enquiring nature and disarming ingenuity. He survived typhoid, mined for gold and opals, was one of the legendary 'blooded' ANZAC's having fought and been seriously injured at Gallipoli, was marooned on a deserted island with a mate that went mad and tried to kill him, trained with Snowy Baker, a 1908 Olympic Games silver medallist for boxing, after being told he would never walk again without crutches and went on to fight in a boxing exhibition at Grafton, wrote text books for the Australian Army in WW II, travelled extensively throughout Cape York Peninsula often with Aboriginals beginning his life-long interest in their customs, and then on to the cattle stations of the Guld of Carpentaria, hunted crocodiles, knew poverty, broke in horses, chronicled the rites and history of some indigenous races, saving their culture from anonymity, just to name a few of his experiences. Jack was awarded an OBE for his services to publishing and died a few months short of his 90th birthday.
