“Colin Thiele and Mike McKelvey have in Range Without Man examined the spirit of a region and what it means to man. The region is the North Flinders Ranges of South Australia, a vast and primitive landscape which retains much that has vanished from the modern world. In stark beauty and dreaming silence, the ancient hills preserve the wilderness solitude which offers escape from the pressures of city life.
Yet this solitude is in danger as more and more people attempt to find it, and by their presence destroy the very thing that they seek. The creators of this book show a deep concern for the area which they describe, and a feat that its unique character may vanish under the impact of tourism.”
