RE­TRAC­ING LEG­ENDARY Red Cen­tre jour­neys, Glenn Mor­ri­son finds new an­swers to age-old queries by ex­plor­ing na­tion-shap­ing walks: from a jour­ney of Abo­rig­i­nal Dream­time an­ces­tors and John McDouall Stu­art’s south–north trek across the con­ti­nent; to an­thro­pol­o­gist T. G. H. Strehlow’s childhood jour­ney down the Finke River and con­ser­va­tion­ist Arthur Groom’s reimag­in­ing of the coun­try’s heart as a tourist play­ground.
