"This biography of Sir Hans Heysen has a scope as wide and colourful as one of his own great canvases of the Flinders Ranges. As told by Colin Thiele, it reads as fluently and often as dramatically as a powerful family novel, and is an intensely human account of the artist's life and times.
A pathfinder in more ways than one, Heysen's painting expeditions to the Flinders Ranges - which he was the first to discover in an artistic sense - opened up a new world and produced some of his finest work.
This is a book which tells of the growth and ripening of a great talent, of family life and love, and the sweep of one man's life across almost a century."
