Stan made many trips into the Western Desert with his associates which have now become the basis of a great deal of anthropological study, having been instrumental in contacting the last of the bush nomads. His following of Forrest’s route and recording the relics of Carnegie and other explorers laid the groundwork for Hesperian’s Exploration Diaries projects and the spark for the 4WD travellers of later decades.

As with many books nowadays, a small run only, so do not delay in getting a copy. Author direct Stan Gratte. 292 Seventh St Geraldton. 6530. 99212845.
