Overview

"Trekking Around Australia and Beyond" is a tale of a challenge that included a visit into the "Dead Heart" of the continent where there is little life to be seen. Come meet Aborigines still living their Old Stone Age ways. There was just enough sustainable life for the earliest form of human culture to eek out an existence hunting lizards, grubs, perhaps a snake or rabbit, a few birds and rarely a "roo." Watch my companions hunt kangaroos where cattle graze at two square miles per head. Pass through an area about a fifth the size of the USA with enough herbage for sheep and for small towns to sprout. It is not until the fringes of the coast that there is enough green to satisfy the needs of a population. This adventure tale brings the reader from the most primitive human culture to the exhilarating surfing life on the southeast coast.

Peter Fraser was born and raised on Long Island, New York. The random courses selected at Cornell University: languages, arts, history, geology and sociology, qualified him for a B.A. in Anthropology. After earning a M. S. in Education at Hofstra College, he taught in three states where there was nearby skiing, and in Arizona for the ranch lifestyle where he coached cowboy polo. Vacations supplied the time for travel which he pursued avidly. After solo trips around Europe to broaden his background, he decided to hitch-hike the Pan American Highway, from Venezuela along the west coast of South America to Bolivia and back. At this level he met the people who lived there and shared their lifestyle. It was great adventure, but survival was never a certainty. Only incredible good luck brought him back alive. This book concerns his nine month visit to Australia and back to New York through south Asia and the Near East.
