Summary
A reconstruction of life on the Birdsville Track, "which joins Marree in South Australia to Birdsville in Queensland. Every fortnight a carrier called [Tom] Kruse set out for Birdsville with supplies and mail for half a dozen cattle stations lying along the Track. The Back of Beyond follows Kruse on a typical trip and leaves him at various points along the route to tell stories associated with the areas through which he passes."--DVD jacket
