Armed with a Toyota truck, insect repellent, and an esky full of beer, intrepid journalists Dave Finkelstein and Jack London set out for the Australian bush in pursuit of the deadly salty- a real man-eating crocodile. Though the croc proves elusive, the authors find an entertaining cast of characters- imaginative entrepreneurs and hearty pioneers- who color the baked and barren landscape.

From one-horse shantytowns and desolate stretches to cosmopolitan Sydney, they experience a peculiar variety of uniquely Australian phenomena: a dwarf-throwing contest, cold spaghetti sandwiches, and a regional rash called "Karumba rot." Rich in the history and geography of a vast, fascinating continent, Greater Nowheres is also an exploration of solitude, mateship, contemplation- and adventure
