Blast the Bush - Len Beadell
Soft-cover. 14 x 21 cm. 212 pages. Text in ENGLISCHER SPRACHE !!!!
Len Beadell who has been called the last of the true Australian explorers, was born on a farm at West Pennant Hills in NSW in 1923. As a surveyor and road builder he worked all over the Australian outback from Arnhem Land to the Gibson Desert. In his lifetime Len Beadell wrote six best-selling bookson Australia's bush and outback.
With the road building exploits described in "Too long in the Bush" behind him, Beadell was the perfect choice for the task of selecting and preparing the location for the weapons testing trials. With his characteristic humour and embellished with his own cartoons, Beadell tells the story of the people who worked on the project - in some cases it was as much a trial of them as it was of any weapon - and he recounts the sequence of events that led up to the gigantic explosion that was to BLAST THE BUSH.
