John Flynn has had more memorials dedicated to him than any other Australian. His presence still pervades the Australian bush. Who was this extraordinary man? Why was he so special? What did he achieve? He never wrote his autobiography - never had the time. Many others have written about them, though.
Historian Ivan Rudolph, author of Eyre the forgotten explorer and Sturt's Desert Drama, has blended their historical accounts with original and unpublished source materials and Flynn's own letters, pamphlets and articles. Years of research and hard work have resulted in three very readable books which are neither a history nor a detailed biography. When reading any one of them you will move with Flynn through the action and drama of his life and experience the man and his times in a fresh and authentic way.
Ivan Rudolph has brought out Flynn the man, who like no other, revolutionised the lives of people in the Never Never country of Australia.
