I have just finished reading this above book authored by Rev. Fred McKay who was directly involved with
Alf Traeger, Rev. John Flynn, the Australian Inland Mission and the RFDS.

Although I had already read many accounts of the achievements of Traeger, this book brought it all together into a single account and was a delightful read of the events that put isolated station residents in contact with the rest of society. As McKay says "More a fireside yarn than a biography".
The pedal radio and later battery transceivers were the forerunners of the HF radios that many of us carry in our vehicles to enable help in eventful situations.

I can thoroughly recommend the book. My copy came from Westprint.

The Treagar Hills at the northern end of the Eagle Hwy were named in his memory. Cheers.
