If the traveller's aim is to find wonders and treasures not before our eyes that others have overlooked, then this is truly a hidden classic. - PICO IYER Wings of the Kite-Hawk is unlike any other book written about inland Australia. Bittersweet and entrancing, it is a set of linked journeys into the Australian landscape: its past and present, its people and its half-remembered secrets. In each chapter, Nicolas Rothwell takes a precursor and follows him. His guides include famous explorers from the past - Leichhardt, Sturt, Strehlow and Giles - as well as artists, anthropologists, rodeo riders and even Hell's Angels. Vivid characters weave in and out of this story, inspiring conversations and travels that examine different states of mind and heart: live, loss, fear, friendship.
