    'Gidgee and Grit . . . a handbook of everything about Central Australia' - The Senior'

    Gidgee and Grit is a handbook of everything about Central Australia, from the oldest fossils in the world to the varieties of native truffles and how the indigenous people know when to hunt for them. It also contains a detailed account of the attractions not to be missed along the East McDonnell Ranges, as well as a compendious illustrated guide to the flora and fauna and a glossary of outback colloquialisms. And in case you needed one, a selection of damper recipes. [Review by Christopher Butler, 'The Senior' August 2013.]
