A beautiful exploration of human restlessness weaved with vivid descriptions Chatwin's Australian travels. He visits the faultlines between Australia's aboriginal culture and western colonizers. Fascinating, entertaining, stimulating.
Part adventure story, part philosophical essay, this extraordinary book takes Bruce Chatwin into the heart of Australia on a search for the source and meaning of man's restless nature.
