'... not a volume of facts and figures. It enlarges and harnesses the human aspect, such as journeys along the Coorong, across Yorke and Eyre Peninsulas and into the Centre. Some pioneers who undertook those early adventures are still living, lending a contemporary link to the spirit of past motoring. These local identities first provided, and then broke down, the charisma of the car.
Australia is now one of the most motorised countries in the world; this book with its photographs, some exclusive, is an important chronicle of that development.'
