    ‘Ben Stubbs uncovers the sheer delight and surprise of discovering what’s in your own backyard.’ — Bob Byrne, author of Adelaide Remember When and Australia Remember When

    Outsiders think
    of South Australia as being different, without really knowing much about it. Combining
    his own travel across the million-square kilometres of the state with an
    investigation of its history, Ben Stubbs seeks to find out what South Australia
    is really like.


    In the spirit of
    the best travel writing and literary non-fiction, he lingers in places of quiet
    beauty and meets some memorable people. Along the way he debunks most of the
    clichés that plague the state. Travelling to Maralinga, Ceduna, Kangaroo
    Island, the Flinders Ranges, Coober Pedy, the storied Adelaide suburb of
    Elizabeth and the once-mighty river that is the Murray, Stubbs brings this
    diverse state to life. He even addresses head-on the question ‘Is South
    Australia weird?’


    Readers will find it hard to
    resist the book’s implicit invitation to take a look at places much closer to
    home, to take the time to drink in dramatic landscapes that are slow, deep and
    speckled with unforgettable characters.
