Finding Burke & Wills CD

$35.00

Howitt´s story makes enthralling reading. He recounts the discovery of the two dead explorers, and the recovery of the sole survivor, John King. In the final part of the story, Howitt reflects on the return expedition to collect the two bodies. Finding Burke and Wills republishes a talk Howitt gave in Adelaide more than 40 years later in 1907, with the explorer looking back on the two expeditions.

He also discusses the 1858 expedition into South Australia´s Far North led by Benjamin Herschel Babbage, who was recalled under controversial circumstances for making slow progress. Howitt makes a convincing case for his belief that the Government had made a scapegoat out of Babbage.
