Man Tracks

by Ion Idriess

“This book of the life and work of the mounted police in Australian wilds is what the Mounteds would probably call a “patrol job”.  Well, the mounted patrols have helped open up much new country for our stockmen and miners… My principle qualifications for writing Man Tracks are: personal acquaintance with most of the men concerned, a share in a twelve-hundred-mile patrol through the last wild area of the Kimberleys, and twenty-five years’ wanderings in the interior (often with the blacks) by which I have gained a knowledge of the country, and an understanding of the mentality of the aborigines, that can be learned in no other way…”
