Description - To Hell & High Water by Gregory Bryan

To Hell and High Water tells the story of the quest of
two brothers to conquer the extreme conditions of outback
Australia, recreating the Bourke to Hungerford `tramp'
that influenced some of Australian literary legend Henry
Lawson's greatest works. The book is part autobiography
and part biography. It is an autobiography of the
author's experiences with his brother overcoming
significant obstacles to achieve his dream of walking in
Lawson's footsteps. It paints a vivid picture of some of
Australia's most remote country, the challenges and
dangers, the heat, the distance, mosquitoes, blisters and
thirst. At the same time it blends in the biography of
Henry Lawson's captivating life including his marriage,
struggles with alcoholism, his suicide attempt,
influences upon his writing and his ideals of mateship.
Extracts of Lawson's own writing have been carefully
selected and woven into the narrative in a manner that
draws parallels between the two experiences and offers
fresh insights into his life.
