Still in the Bush

by Len Beadell

Lansdowne, 1994, ISBN 1863024034, black and white photographic plates, black and white illustrations, illustrated endpapers (maps), paperback

Very Good Condition, a little edge and shelf wear, a little rubbing and bumping to edges, and corners, previous owners’ inscription on half title page (see photographs)

“Laden with trig poles, theodolites – and porridge – Beadell and his team built roads, laid out town sites and undertook an enormous survey programme in order to prepare a test launching area in one of the most isolated parts of the world.  The problems ranged from taking astrofixes in a cloudy sky and becoming surrounded by a sea of red mud, to patching a bald spot on a pet joey.  All were solved by using those two most necessary ingredients of life in the bush – ingenuity and imagination.”
