From the front dustjacket flap: "This account of the evolution of bushwalking in Victoria is, of necessity, incomplete, but it does tell of the joy of discovery, the pleasure of club walking, of conservation issues essential to the outdoors' survival as a source of recreation. It describes in some detail the searches for individuals and groups who became lost. Drama, tragedy, failure and success of the Search and Rescue Section are recounted in absorbing narrative, as are the achievements of the most active people who worked for all walkers through the FVWC."
