Alice Springs has a special place in the hearts of Australians. It is our most remote city, surrounded by the red sands of the central deserts and roaming camels. There have been legendary characters right from the beginning whose faith has inspired them to open up Central Australia, to make it a great place to live or a unique spot to visit. Ida Standley, Carl Strehlow, Daisy Bates, John Flynn, Albert Namatjira, Eddie Connellan and twenty other colourful characters are the inspiring subject of this book.
