The Explorers Summary

The Explorers by Timothy Flannery

From the account of how a convict rescued Eliza Fraser to the story of Maori chief Te Pahi saving lives of condemned thieves in Sydney in 1805 and how John Ainsworth Horrocks was shot by his camel, "The Explorers" takes us beyond the frontier into a world of danger, compassion, humour, brutality and death. It not only includes the work of Wills, Giles, Leichhardt, Stuart, Eyre and Mitchell, but a host of other fascinating figures too, documenting almost four centuries of exploration.
