Summary
"This book is about the often-forgotten Muslim cameleers, known as 'Afghans', who came to Australia between the 1860s and the 1930s to ply Australia's inland routes. These pioneering cameleers became an integral part of the exploration and transportation systems in arid Australia. This book is about how the cameleers have been largely forgotten by history and asks why." -- Provided by publisher
