“Flying Fox and Drifting Sand is undoubtedly one of the most delightful books of travel and nature writing in Australian literature.  It is the fruit of two extensive surveys which Francis Ratcliffe undertook for the C.S.I.R.O. The first was when he tramped the jungles and mangrove swamps of Queensland to investigate flying foxes, and the second when he travelled the inland, from South Australia up the Birdsville Track into Queensland, to study erosion.”
