    This is the story of the author and his partner's travels in the centre of Australia. It covers all the main attractions around Alice Springs and also decribes the Ghan train trip from Alice Springs to Adelaide. The descriptions are simple and informative. It isn't a guidebook and it not having a Table of Content didn't worry me.

    If The Book is like the sample...

    No reviews, poor presentation and a 7 page sample that gives no information about the book. With this sort of presentation and with poor reviews that this author has on all his other books, how could I ever buy this? At least it should provide a table of contents. Looks like a scam.
