Friends of the State Library of South Australia and Dymocks Adelaide invite you to the launch of UNDISCOVERED AUSTRALIA,
'Explorer, geographer, cinematographer, war hero, naturalist and climatologist, Sir Hubert Wilkins was many things to many people.
This fascinating book records one of the last of the 'discovery era' expeditions led by one of the last great adventurers of the twentieth century. Often critical of the complacent settlers and their disregard for the land, he provides a vital account of the country and its inhabitants in the 1920s.
This reprint, with three scholarly introductory essays, sheds new light on this enigmatic, poorly understood Australian and offers fresh information on his far-ranging interests and amazing achievements.'
Professor Corey Bradshaw, formerly Sir Hubert Wilkins Chair of Climate Change, will formally launch UNDISCOVERED AUSTRALIA at Dymocks Adelaide on Tuesday, 28th of March from 6pm.
