Crossing the Dead Heart is a classic narrative of modern exploration – and follows the first crossing of the Simpson desert by the author in 1939. From Charlotte Waters Madigan travelled by camel, camping at Andado Bore before heading east through the centre of the desert to Birdsville, then south by Goyder’s Lagoon to the eastern shores of Lake Eyre, then finally to the railway at Maree.
