Hi there,

Hesperian Press have released a couple more books. Hubbe and Lindsay. I have Lindsay's from a previous release but look forward to having a read of Hubbe.

"Samuel Grau Hubbe and the South Australia to Western Australia Stock Route Expedition 1895-1896."
SG Hubbe. Edited by Andrew Guy Peake.
(Western Australian Explorers' Diaries Project series.)

Contains the official and private journals of Hubbe and John Mahar and biographical notes on the men of the expedition.



"Journal of the Elder Scientific Exploring Expedition 1891-1892."
David Lindsay.
(Western Australian Explorers' Diaries Project series.)
Edited by Peter J. Bridge, Calliope Bridge and Celene Bridge.

With appendices on the plants by Alex George and animals by Ian Abbott, reported by the expedition. Also the full Anthropology report by Richard Helms which has not been available for over a century, which contains 6 colour plates and many b&w photos. Biographies of all the men.



Get them from the publishers or the normal outlets. I think EO member Stephen has an ancestor on the Hubbe expedition.

Cheers
Alan

Hi Alan

You are a Champion, it is greatly appreciated.

I will make sure that I get the first one, the South Australia to Western Australia Stock Route Expedition 1895-1896

My great grandfather was one of the team and I only have the reports from when they were submitted to the SA Parliament.

Thanks you once again.



Cheers

Am I going blind or having a mans look.....lol

I can not find the book listed, or am I looking in the wrong place?

Hi Stephen,
They might not have updated the main website yet.
Just give them a call in the morning.

BTW-when you have the retracing expedition organised make sure you invite me.
Thanks :-)

Many thanks for the info. Hesperian press publishes some very interesting journals.

I have found that Project Gutenberg is a treasure trove of books of early Australian explorers. Many of their accounts are free to download.

The following link should take you there.Link to Project Gutenberg
