Publisher Comments:

Book News Annotation:

At the beginning of the 20th century, much of inland Australia comprised what freelance historian and writer Hains calls an ecological frontier, that is, a frontier not because it was unmapped but because the conditions made it a difficult target for imperialist exploitation. She shows the roles Antarctic explorer Douglas Mawson (1882-1958) and minister John Flynn (1880-1951) played in establishing the idea of the frontier in Australian consciousness. Distributed in the US by Paul and Company, a division of IPG. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
