This book lays no claim to being a complete history of Birdsville. The author established immediate rapport with Birdsville and the desert environs in 1966. A continued interest has fostered this wotk about a place that 'lise wide a thousand miles', set in quiet splendour all its own, beneath the wide arc of the ever changing wetsern sky. From the jacket blurb.
