Abstract:

"Australia is a country that exists on a vast scale. It is the only island that is also a continent and the only continent that is also a country. Despite being the most desiccated, infertile and climactically aggressive of all inhabited continents, it teems with life. In fact, Australia has more things that can kill you in extremely nasty ways than anywhere else: sharks, crocodiles, the ten most deadly poisonous snakes on the planet, fluffy yet toxic caterpillars, seashells that actually attack you, and the unbelievable box jellyfish. Wherever Bryson goes he finds Australians who are cheerful, extroverted and unfailingly obliging--the beaming products of a land with clean, safe cities, cold beer, and constant sunshine." -- Container.
