“In this book, Len Beadell tells the story of his second road across Australia which was driven 1600 kilometres from east to west, form South Australia to West Australia through the heart of the Great Victoria Desert.  Construction took years, as the road was driven through almost impenetrable mulga scrub and over sand ridges which until Beadell’s bulldozer came along had stopped everything but camels.
For five months the author’s wife and infant daughter camped with him in the desert.  The stay of this youngest member of the team is commemorated by the Connie Sue Highway, a 650 kilometre stretch of road which extends from the Warburton Ranges to Rawlinna on the Nullarbor.”
