The great majority of holidaymakers in Australia get home in one piece, but a handful do suffer fatal or serious injuries. See Australia and Die is about dangerous Australia. It's about relentless heat, creatures that can kill in minutes and the cruelty of nature.The carefully researched stories in this book give you the facts about the real life-threatening situations that locals and overseas tourists have faced while travelling around Australia.Some stories are well known, many are not. This book takes the raw elements - the ocean, the sky, the billabongs, the Outback - and shows how relentless they can be.
