Just in time for Australia Day, The Weekend Australian's Review supplement carried a full-page pair of book reviews by Babette Smith. More column-centimetres are devoted to Where is Dr Leichhardt? by Darrell Lewis than to the translated edition of Hans-Wilhelm Finger's Ludwig Leichhardt: Lost in the Outback but Smith lays out a good case for reading both. You can read the review online here or download a PDF of the article here. (Just a reminder that you can also read this site's review of Lewis, from earlier in 2013, here and that Finger is next on our reading list, with a full review to be pubished soon.)
