The Great Trek: A Frontier Story
Zane Grey made his first deep-sea fishing trek to Australia in 1935. The land and its history was magical to Grey and he was inspired to write a saga of the Australian-frontier. Everything about the interior of the continent fascinated him from the exotic plants and animals to the presence of the last Stone Age man, the Australian aborigine. Here he chronicles the attempts by cattle-drovers to drive a huge herd across the northern desert to the lush Kimberley Mountains where gold had been discovered but beef was in short supply. Due to wartime paper shortages, this great Australian epic has never been published as Zane Grey wrote it until now.
