DUNE is a four-letter word

$27.50

Griselda Sprigg, her husband, Reg, and children, Marg and Doug, were attempting the first motorised crossing of the Simpson Desert.  Steep, slippery sand dunes stretched behind and before them forever.  Dune is a four-letter word, muttered Griselda, ‘and so is bloody spinifex!

Dune is a four-letter word describes the Spriggs’ pioneering adventures – not only in the Simpson Desert but across the vast Australian outback, as the family joined Reg in his relentless geological explorations.  Griselda Sprigg tells a story of true love, a heart-warming tale of a family working together, and a humorous, earthy yarn about the bush and its characters.

Griselda’s book is also the story of a great Australian outback resort, Arkaroola, and of how the Spriggs turned a drought-stricken sheep station into the magnificent flora and fauna sanctuary it is today.
