I love these survival type books .This is a great one set in the outback of Australia, it beggars belief that anyone could survive . A hijack and left for dead situation . The maps could do with a little more annotation as they are open to interpretation Due to his previous history with the law he was met with disbelief on his return Accompanying photos add to the astonishment. Ricky was extremely fortunate that water was sometimes available at that time of year and with it a little sustenance. But wow what a tale!
