“Walking the Flinders Ranges is one of the most comprehensive, closely textured, and affectionate books ever to be written about any area of Australia: It was inspired by the fact that Warren Bonython, who has been fascinated by the Flinders for many years, at last decided to be the first to walk them from end to end.
Accompanied by a series of companions on successive walking stages, he tramped northwards in conditions ranging from the freezing dawns and blustery rain of winter to the parched dryness and searing heat of summer.
IN the long traverse from Crystal Brook to Mount Hopeless he climbed more than sixty summits, in ascents including the beetling stone gully of Mount Aleck and the granite ledges of The Armchair.  For five days he pushed through the thick scrub of the somber Gammon Ranges plateau and walked in lone and light-hearted freedom along the old camel pad beyond Mount Painter.
