Summary
"Loves Creek Station is one of the earliest pastoral leases in Central Australia, and once covered nearly 4000 sq km. Gidgee and Grit traces the history of the region from geological beginnings and Aboriginal culture to the early explorers like John McDouall Stuart, and the construction of the Overland Telegraph Line. It highlights the determination and fortitude of the early settlers who chose to eke out a living from this seemingly inhospitable terrain and were, without adequate communications, isolated formonths and often years. It encompasses the transition from horses and camels to motor vehicles and helicopters, from cattle breeding to tourism and, after 100 years of cattle grazing, eventaully returning the land to its indigenous owners" -- cover description.
