Since the early days of settlement, men, women and children have battled the harshness of outback Australia to survive, and in many cases to prosper. Medical assistance was often thousand of miles away, children were raised without the benefit of education, and people could go for months, even years in total isolation. The Australian Inland Mission, founded and led by the indomitable John Flynn, was the first organization to recognize the unique needs of outback Australians. Here we are given an account of Flynn's struggles and achievements as he sought to bring safety and communication to outback Australia
