about

An utterly compelling account of Burke and Wills' journey into the great unknown.

It was the greatest expedition of its time. In 1860 Robert O'Hara Burke, accompanied by William Wills and a party of explorers, set out to cross Australia from south to north. A few months later a tree bore a strange carving: Dig Under 3ft NW.

Burke, Wills and five other men were dead. How did a man notorious for getting lost on the way home from the pub come to lead an expedition into the desert's dead heart? What went wrong?

Edited for a young adult audience, Dig 3ft NW is an abridged version of Sarah Murgatroyd's acclaimed and bestselling book, The Dig Tree.

'The characters of Burke and Wills, and their accompanying team are well-drawn, with all their fatal flaws and strengths...This is history at its best, well-written and researched and hard to put down...It moves at a cracking pace, certainly faster than the actual expedition!...This is Australian history writing at its best.' Magpies
