Back Country Trek
15cm x 23cm
In 1981 John Blay was awarded the Parks Writers Award. It started a life-long investigation of south-eastern AustraliaIs forests. Accompanied only by a fickle Zachary B. de Mule he set out on foot through the challenging escarpment country of Deua and Wadbilliga National Parks, walking all the way from Araluen to Bemboka. His researches and travels in the region have continued over the years, resulting in Back Country: trek through the Deua and Wadbilliga, an updated exploration of the most extreme, rugged parts of the south-eastern ranges.
John Blay is a writer, naturalist and walker. He has written extensively about the bush and its people in poetry, drama and prose. The south-east forests of New South Wales have been his main focus for more than forty years.
Following its first publication in 1987, now long out of print, this much revised edition has been brought up to date with additional information, including preface, illustrations, afterword and index. It sits next to On Track in the continuing journey of discovery.
