Question an Australian and you will most likely find an urban man, vaguely conscious of great space inland from the coastal fringe in which he lives and almost wholly ignorant of its nature. In 196 one of these men tired of his state of innocence. He bought a Land-Rover and set out to discover for himself the reality. In this book Ray Ericksen recounts his experience of seven months of solitary travel and reports on what he found in the interior -of his island home, bringing a philosopher's sensitivity and a poet's eye and ear to this ancient, beautiful land. He discovers the Centre through the changes it wrought in himself, aware of its mystery and always conscious of the first men to see it - above all of Ernest Giles, the explorer, in whose path he was travelling. He tells of country, people and wild creatures, and gives perhaps the fin t sustained intellectual judgement of the Australian inland. A major piece of travel writing and personal epic, West of Centre may well become a classic, to be read and re-read as long as men ponder their place in the natural world about "hem.
