Right from the spelling of his name, Sir Thomas Livingston Mitchell is one of the most controversial and enigmatic of Australia's explorers. With an "eagerness of temper" that made him a thorn in the side of five colonial governors, together with an inherent pursuit of exactitude and precision, Mitchell stamped his mark upon the colony of New South Wales both as Surveyor General and as an explorer. This book contains Mitchell's journals, excellent drawings and seven maps to provide a detailed picture of the largely unexplored North Eastern region of Australia in 1845. ID11099
