Description - In Leichhardt's Footsteps by Bruce Simpson

the 1848 disapppearance of Leichhardt and his party in the outback is one of the most enduring mysteries in Australia's history. When, nearly 100 years later, four stockmen drove a herd of cattle across a remote property in Queensland and came across some strange early colonial artefacts, it seemed as if some of the questions surrounding Leichhardt's disappearance might be answered. Author Bruce Simpson was one of those men who made the initial discovery. In this wonderful book, he tells how he and some of his droving mates went back to try to find again what they believed to be real evidence of Leichhardt's passing, and offers his own explanation, borne of his deep understanding of the bush, for what happened to that ill-fated expedition.
