This unique travelling guide follows part of the route of the iconic Oodnadatta Track, an area best recognised for its link with the original Old Ghan Railway. It's not just the railway that makes this area so extraordinary though, it's the stories of the people who lived and died here; their challenges, their victories and their personal sacrifice.
This book takes you on a tour of this remarkable part of the country, with forgotten stories of early Aussie explorers and pioneers. It details the events that earned this country the reputation of being such an unforgiving land; the rail accidents, plague, suicide and even murder, just to name a few!
Tragedy, determination and prosperity, yep, it's all here!
