Started this morning, in company with Morgan and Jemmy, to examine the country to the southward. Crossing a large marsh at a point where it was only yards wide, and continuing through thickets, we camped at a spot with very little feed and no water, in south latitude 29 degrees 21 minutes 48 seconds. At eighteen miles got a view of the sea, and beheld the sand-hills about fifteen miles ahead. I was very fortunate in finding water and feed about three miles North-North-West, to which we took the horses and bivouacked, leaving on the island all the loads, which we shall have to carry at least half way, three quarters of a mile, the route being too boggy for the horses.

Seeing a native fire several miles to the southward, I intend sending Tommy Windich and Jemmy in search of the tribe to-morrow, in order that I may question them respecting the reported death of white men to the eastward. Wheeler skilfully interweaves accounts of the heroic exploits of the polar pioneers with observations from her own experience venturing into the very male environment of Antarctica in the s. Monger and Jemmy, to explore the country to the eastward, leaving Mr. He discovered and named the Arbuthnot Range, since renamed the Warrumbungle Range. We came upon a small patch of open grassy land, and camped without water for our horses.

Very little was known of this lake, and absolutely nothing of the country beyond. Steering about north for one mile, we found a rock water-hole holding about thirty gallons; and continuing for thirteen miles over grassy plains, thinly wooded, the country became very clear and open, and at twenty-five miles there was nothing but plains, gently undulating, of grass and salt-bush in view.

He was the first explorer through the areas that now include the towns of Boorowa and Cowra. Suffering greatly, the party had to row hundreds of kilometres back upstream for the return journey.

The spring was dry, but by digging a few feet obtained abundant supply. In marked contrast to Captain Scott's journal, the people and environment of the Pacific are the central actors, rather than the explorer's own character.
