“Gundabooka, Milparinka, Tibooburra, Innamincka: these were some of the places – places whose names read like a magical formula – that lay along Frank Clune’s path when he set out from Sydney on a 2000 mile tour of western New South Wales and beyond.  In imagination the reader may here accompany him, “Roaming Round the Darling”, treading the ways of the pioneers, experiencing the beauty as well as the toughness of the inland.  Frank Clune describes his journey, which he made in company with the late Bartlett Adamson, author and journalist, with characteristic verve and high spirits.  In every town and settlement there were people and things to interest him – old friends and new ones, stories and anecdotes of yesterday and today, odd and fascinating details of history.”
