Description - Sand Swimmers by Narelle Oliver

The secret life of Australia's Dead Heart.

The Dead Heart is a desert wilderness in the centre of Australia. It is difficult to imagine anything can exist in such a harsh place. But the Dead Heart has a secret. It holds amazing stories of adaptation and survival.

Follow in the footsteps of early explorers like Charles Sturt and learn what the Indigenous people of this land first discovered: not all is quite as it seems.
