Description - Australian Backyard Explorer by Peter Macinnis

Australian Backyard Explorer has been recognised on the 2011 White Ravens list for international children's and youth literature. Produced each year by the International Youth Library in Germany, the White Ravens recognise 'books of international interest that deserve a wider reception on account of their universal theme' or 'their exceptional and often innovative artistic and literary style and design'.

Australian Backyard Explorer tells the stories of many intrepid individuals who explored the Australian continent in the first 120 years of European settlement. It includes little known explorers as well as the old favourites, such as James Cook, Edward John Eyre, Robert O'Hara Burke and William John Wills. There are tales not only of tragedy, conflict and death, but also of loyalty, amazing perseverance and wonder over the new animals and landscapes they encountered.
