Equitainment's Comments

Wow what a read! Love the extra reading at the back! Oh Jackie French, wish we had your great books when I was learning Australian history, but then again I haven't left my childhood at all, and I am still learning.

Worth reading at any age,

Product Overview

The story of the famous Burke and Wills it has never been told before!

The humans call him 'Bell Sing', but to other camels he is known as 'He Who Spits Further Than the Wind'. Transported from the mountains and deserts of the 'Northwest Frontier' (present-day Pakistan and Afghanistan), Bell Sing accompanies explorers Burke and Wills as they try to cross Australia from south to north...

Bell Sing can smell water over the sandhills on the horizon...and freedom too. Can the expedition succeed? And who - if anyone - will survive?

This is the gritty and true story about one of the most extraordinary and iconic events in Australia's history.
