Back cover copy
Of course, what greeted Bill Bryson was something rather different. Australia is the driest, flattest, hottest, most infertile and climatically aggressive of all the inhabited continents and still it teems with life - most of it quite deadly.
In fact, Australia has more things that can kill you in a very nasty way than anywhere else.
Ignoring such dangers, Bill Bryson journeyed to Australia and promptly fell in love with the country. And who can blame him? Friendly people, clean cities, excellent food, glorious weather and cold beer...life doesn't get much better than this.
