About the Author
David Hirst was an Australian journalist, documentary filmmaker, and author of Heroin in Australia. A great love of the American West took him to California and ultimately to a life in the Eastern Mojave desert. Upon returning to Australia, his prescient and revolutionary finance column, 'Planet Wall Street', was widely read in The Age newspaper. David died in 2013.
Valerie Morton is a writer and film-maker. She lives in a rainforest in northern New South Wales with assorted wildlife.
"Hirst has written a lively account of adventures to relish." FOUR STARS
"His descriptions of the barren, wild landscape capture its rugged beauty and begin to help us understand the attraction of such a difficult life...an amusing account of meetings with strange types."
--Felicity Price, Sunday Star Times
