books, but also some items we've never stocked before such as "audio
books", "kids books" and even a raffle ticket for charity. So sit
back and browse online - Xmas shopping has never been easier for those that love
New Len Beadell Products
lifetime in the Bush: Biography of Len Beadell|
Len Beadell can lay claim to being the last of the great explorers of
Australia: in the 1950's and 60's he undertook solo surveys which led to the
building of many of the roads travelled today only by 4WD vehicles in the
most remote areas of Australia's outback. But Len was more than just a
surveyor - he was an author, cartoonist, raconteur and, above all, a great
family man. A great story about a great man - a great gift that will be
appreciated by anyone who loves remote Australia.
Long in the Bush - Video Part 2|
This video is a sequel to 'Too Long in the Bush - Part 1' which we've had
on the shop for a long time now. The reason we didn't initially stock Part 2
was because it was compiled after Len's death but due to popular demand we
have now taken this into our regular stock. So to all those that have dying
for us to get it in - get your orders in now!
