Backseat Drivers - A road trip along the Hume Highway with some opinionated voices from Australia's history
Publisher: Ginninderra Press
It’s a fact not yet universally acknowledged, that everybody should at some point in their lives attempt to follow in the footsteps of the explorers Hume and Hovell down the Hume Highway, preferably in the company of Captain Cook, Henry Lawson, Caroline Chisholm and Ned Kelly. Backseat Drivers is a hilarious and biting satire on the intersection and byways of the past, the present and the future.
‘A most wonderful endeavour’ – Captain James Cook
‘Such is strife!’ – Edward Kelly
‘I wish I’d written it’ – Henry Lawson
