A Sunburned Country

In a Sunburned Country by Bill Bryson

Bill Bryson is at his best as he takes us on a trip down under. He manages to capture the essence of what Australia and Australians are all about. He shares hilarious tales of the phobias of many a visitor to Australia; the worrying about deadly spiders and snakes and of course sharks. Along the way he meets real, true blue characters and notes interesting historical trivia that even most Aussies wouldn't know.

We have given this book to more people than any other we've shared. Take it from an Aussie - you won't find a more entertaining or accurate look at Australia.
