Book launch: Escape Cliffs
Derek Pugh: Escape Cliffs: The First Northern Territory Expedition 1864-66
This is a true story of greed, courage, exploration, murder, wasted efforts, life and death struggles, insubordination, incredible seamanship, and extraordinary bushmanship, amid government bungling and Aboriginal resistance, during South Australia’s first attempt at colonising their Northern Territory in 1864.
Derek Pugh grew up in the Australian Capital Territory, but moved to the Northern Territory in 1982, so he claims to have been a ‘Territorian’ all his life. He has had a long career in education but now teaches part time and writes.
