A crash landing at a remote island airstrip...a scary encounter with an octopus...green ants that defend their tree by attacking anyone who touches it...a mysterious lava-tube cave with hikers' flashlights floating like fireflies down into its blackness...fruit bats noisily lobbing mangos onto your cabin's tin roof...the beauties - and dangers - of the crocodile-infested Kakadu National Park...a rugby match in Northern Territory (and why Aussie girls never root for their teams)...
In this colorful and remarkable book, written by a colorful and remarkable woman pilot, you'll find the most enjoyable way to discover Australia - by flying a light airplane to its places of greatest interest while watching the exotic landscape unroll beneath you: vistas of giant paisley patterned earth, caused by underlying salt strata; stunning views of red landscapes, uplifted and contorted during the earth's primordial boil; the enormously long white beaches of Western Australia, lonesome and edged by brilliant aquas; and the Indian Ocean to the south, marked by hundreds of miles of cliffs (whales breed there.... You could get lucky).
You don't have to be a pilot to enjoy this book. The author also wrote it for nonflyers, in nontechnical terms, to let you see amazing things that pilots experience from their very special perspective.

This was a good but sometimes long-winded story. I have to admit that I didn't care for the female reader as much as I like male readers. That's not always the case but in this case it just happens to be so.
Get a professional reader ! The writer has a slurred voice, so bad that I gave up on listening.
Tell bowser no. Also the the Burketown cloud. Very interesting.
Maybe the paper book is better, with photos.
Too many meals, motels and booze, and not enough flying.
Maybe a documentary, after some heavy editing.
The story is too wordy. The writer tried to impress with a command of the English
language she does not have.
