Still in the bush by Len Beadell
In English language!!! Paperback. 175 pages.
Len Beadell worked as a surveyor and road builder all over the Australian outback from Arnhem land to the Gibson Desert. His descriptions of the countryside, the adventures the team experienced, and the Australian bush caracters they encountered are by turns illuminating and hilarious. His high-spirited account of the work that had to be done "before they called it Woomera" makes vivid and entertainging reading. "We're looking for someone to start some sort of rocket range -or something". Len Beadell cheerfully accepted the challenge in this apparently casual remark and thus began his involvement in what was to become a multi-billion dollar weapons testing project in the Australian Outback - on the Woomera Rocket Range.
