“This unusual book on the Flinders Ranges combines the talents of the well-known Flinders Ranges historian, Hans Mincham, and the artist, Bill Walls. Together they have taken a new approach to depicting the area in words and paintings. Instead of concentrating upon the bold and colourful ranges, gum-lined gorges, and distant purple peaks, they have taken as their theme the subject of ‘Man in the Flinders’.
This book presents a wide selection of the diverse works of man in the Flinders. A few of the subjects are well off the beaten track, but most may be seen on a drive through the ranges. Bill Wall’s paintings, specially commissioned for this book, are vivid portraits of these memorials to our colonial past, while much of the history related in Hans Mincham’s text is based on his recent original research and is presented in this form for the first time.”
