Silhouetted against the fiery glow of sunset, a wanderer dragged his weary bones across the scorching plains of Central Australia. The search for gold had driven him many miles from water. His clothes were ragged and torn, his tongue swollen from thirst… The Legend of Lasseter’s Reef is an evocative account of this universal, yet uniquely Australian story of one man’s quest to find gold in a wilderness of spinifex and sand. Richly illustrated with maps, photos, diary entries and letters, The Legend of Lasseter’s Reef contains clues to one of the world’s greatest lost treasures.
