The minute I saw Tom Griffith’s book description on Amazon I knew his book was a book I must read. It was listed on Kindle Unlimited, but I wasn’t a subscriber. I’d been considering joining Amazon’s eBook library, so I subscribed and picked up “The Art of Time Travel” eBook.
My book-blog posts at Artuccino, show how much I love books about the craft of writing. Closely associated with the craft of writing is the historians’ craft. If you combine my interest in the craft of writing, to my enthusiasm for collecting fragments of history related to Allan Cunningham, then it may become clear that a book about historians, Australian historians, would be one that I would gobble up.
CUNNINGHAM”S 1825 JOURNEY TO THE LIVERPOOL PLAINS NOW AVAILABLE. When studying the coming and goings of geographical explorers you need a map, a very precise, detailed readable map along with clear geographic reference points. A map that shows where the explorers walked, where they camped, what they observed and what they reported in their journals. John Whitehead understood this when he walked in the footsteps of the explorers. He has taken the time to share his experience by recording geographic locations, providing maps and photos of a landscape that in some places still remains visually similar to what the explorers saw. Using the explorers’ original maps and journals, John found where they had been and with respect and dedication stood where these intrepid explorers once stood. His books are indispensable for those who take the time to walk in the footsteps of our early colonial adventurers.
