This is a book about the Australian desert and its central impact on Australian culture, from traditional Aboriginal art to Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. Starting with the Aboriginal understanding of the spiritual significance of the desert, it traces the attempts of the early colonists to conquer this alien space; the changing estimate of the inland explorers in fiction and art as heroes, failures, or psychological studies of obsession; the rediscovery of the desert in the twentieth century by travelers, artists, novelists, photographers and film makers; its interest for ecotourism and as a spiritual experience.The Australian Desert in Literature, Art and Film Roslynn Doris Haynes ... 216 Strzelecki Desert, 193, 224 Strzelecki, Sir Paul, 49 Stuart, John McDouall, 31, 43, 45, 52, 56-7, 69 Sum, Charles, 4, 37, 38-9, ... 15, 239 Taylor, Griffith, 145 terra nullius, 5, 26, 31, 32, 135, 167, 207, 291 n.ll Thomas, Rover, 16 Thompson, Christina, anbsp;...
