Details

The Blue Mountains as we have never seen them before. A unique book that is history, geology, travel, but above all, the personal odyssey of one man who wanted to see, in his own way, the priceless natural heritage of the Blue Mountains wilderness:

'I wanted to embrace the whole of the country and the moments and the moods of the mountains; the dry, blowing heat, the soaking, chilling rain, the scratchy bush, the quiet forest woodlands, the great granite tors, the call of the spotted pardalote, the wild, fiendish cry of the raven, the wind sighing up the ravines and ever and forever the sound of mountain water - the creeks and the rivers with the still pools and the flashing rapids and the tumbled boulders.'

But this is not just a travel book. Although he was travelling solo, the writer wasn't alone and in the pages of BLUE RIVERS are some of the first explorers who first traversed this country. We see the land as they described it in their journals and we discover just what sort of people they were who ventured into the wilderness of BLUE RIVERS country two hundred years ago.
