Lady Packer, already known as a novelist (most recently, The Man in the News, p. 1175, 1964) and autobiographer, appears here as an attractive and companionable traveloguist. With a friend, Elspeth, she journeyed to Australia from her South African home, visited the Outback where she flew with its owner over its iron heart, two million acres worth of it, flew too with the Royal Flying Doctor Service on mercy missions. She listened to the School of the Air, that "world of voices" which supplements the correspondence courses studied by the isolated children of the Out-back. She traveled from Sydney, Australia's melting pot, to the American "crucible," where she was variously impressed by Hawaii, San Francisco, Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon, the Deep South, Virginia, New York. She is aware of race as well as human relations, assessing and associating with her South African experience as she goes. She found the world "a proud place, peopled with men of positive quality." Australia has had little coverage here, and it is fun to see the U.S. from a tourist's view. It's all rather like reading over the shoulder some well written letters home. Clubby. (Kirkus Reviews) 254 pages. Dust jacket has protective non adhesive covering. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Australian::Australian History; Travel & Places; Inventory No: 225169. Hardcover
