'In seventy-six years of restless life Hurley travelled a million miles in every continent of the world. He filmed pearl divers off Thursday Island, headhunters on the unexplored Fly River in New Guinea, whalers in the Southern Ocean. He shared a tent with Shackleton in the Antarctic and the tiny cockpit of Ross and Keith Smith's aeroplane during their pioneer flight from London to Sydney.
here then is the enthralling, fast-moving biography of Frank Hurley; photographer, traveller, film maker, pioneer aviator, explorer, author, cook, lecturer, editor. but above all, adventurer.'
With thirty-two pages of Frank Hurley's inimitable photographs.'
