Description

This is the story of a quest - a journey down the red highway. After a spell reporting the Iraq War, Nicolas Rothwell returns to Australia, to explore the deserts and towns, sleepy coastline and hidden worlds of the north As he travels, his journey gathers momentum and finds a shape. He has unforgettable, even mystical encounters: with a nun, an explorer, a collector and a hunter. It becomes a quest - for knowledge and a sense of home - that builds to a stunning culmination. The Red Highway offers a fresh vision of Australia, its deserts and ancient past, art and people. It explores death, friendship, travel and art, and evokes a unique and mesmerising part of the country.
