Down Under Bill Bryson 2000

Forget Crocodile Dundee, Castlemaine XXXX and the 2000 Sydney Olympics - Bill Bryson is the man to put Australia on the map. ill Bryson has traversed the length and breadth of Australia to bring us his first major new book since A Walk in the Woods.

Bryson is a household name, synonymous with laugh-out-loud humour, uncontrolled sniggering and spontaneous outbursts of chortling. Down Under will reinforce his reputation as the best-loved travel writer and humorist of our day.

One may be fatally chomped by sharks, or crocodiles, or carried hopelessly out to sea by irresistible currents, or left to stagger to an unhappy death in the baking outback. ill Bryson ignored such dangers, and promptly fell in love.
