Highroad for Oz: A Great Little Advent/Douglas, James/Paper/0646523705/S038-E
Pack up your bags and hop on a bus named Albert which operated the world's longest bus route between Calcutta and London.
Bought in Sydney in 1968 for a one-off adventure the old double-decker that once ran between Circular Quay and La Perouse captured the imagination of the young at heart of the day who wanted to experience the countries and cultures that lay between the old world and the new and the bus eventually completed fifteen such trips.
With truth invariably more revealing than fiction this story of young Chas' ride aboard the big double-decker is fun, educational, scary at times but always exciting and proof that innocence and adventure when inspired by a dream will always be life changing.
