Australia's Muslim Cameleers : Pioneers of the Inland 1860s-1930s

Author(s): Philip Jones

RARE AND COLLECTIBLE | AUSTRALIANA

Between 1870 and 1920 as many as 2000 cameleers and 20,000 camels arrived in Australia from Afghanistan and northern India. Australia's Muslim Cameleers is a rich pictorial history of these men, their way of life and the vital role they played in pioneering transport and communication routes across outback Australia's vast expanses. Many of the images and artefacts in this fascinating account are published here for the first time, and the book contains a biographical listing of more than 1200 cameleers.

Wakefield Press, 2007. First edition. A near fine copy of this scarce book only marked by a small crease to the top corner of the rear wrap.. Scans available if required.
