“Percy Trezise, airline pilot turned archaeologist, and his friend Dick Roughsey, who was born under a pandanus palm on a tiny island in the Gulf, to later become Chairman of the Aboriginal Arts Board.
Nancy Bird Walton, who became one of Australia’s most renowned women flyers.  Ram Chandra, who risked his life time and again to catch and study Australia’s worst snake the ‘Taipan’.  Howell Witt, Bishop of one of the world’s largest and most rugged dioceses, that of North West Australia.  The Brushmen of the Bush, these five painters of Broken Hill who went international and scored great success.  Horsemen, dingo trappers, camel catches and prospectors.
…and a multitude of other men and women who have lent color and character to outback Australia.”
