This book is an epic true adventure of modern exploration, grit and determination, as three explorers attempt to traverse the entire wild Wollemi from north to south. It is also an opportunity for you, the reader, to feel the agonies and the joys as they happened. You may grip your armchair with nervous excitement as you gaze down into an inky void, seeking a way of route between the cliffs; or relax as you feel the setting sun add another dimension to the smouldering campfire.

And after you have read the book, you might be inspired to plan an adventure of your own, using the meticulous track notes, maps, grid references and photographs contained within.

They are to be commended for this journey, and the hundreds of hours of preparation behind it, and for sharing it. I envy them.

This book paints a compelling picture of the wild peaks and gorges of Wollemi National Park, of its unique plants and animals. It will inspire readers to experience this special place for themselves.

Tim Hager, Ecologist and Bushwalker

Every walk, and there are twenty in this book, is so vividly described, so well documented and illustrated, it makes me want to do them all.
