Volume One introduces us to the absorbing history of the opening up of Tasmania's South West in the early part of the 1800's. Early explorers came both by sea and trekking overland to this remote area. They were intrepid and determined adventurers who would discover the unique beauty and treasure of this isolated and wild region. The reader will go with them as they explore from Macquarie Harbour and the upper reaches of the Gordon River down to the south coast and Port Davey.

Read extracts from the diaries of these resolute men - men such as James Calder and Alexander McKay, Francis McPartlan, James Sprent and Charles Gould. These glimpses of their experiences give us a feeling for what it was really like to survey and chart this new landscape, leaving us with a deep sense of respect for these men and what they achieved, despite all the suffering and privation they endure to venture into the unknown.
