Waltzing Australia is a captivating tale of adventure and personal discovery--and a vivid portrayal of Australia, its history and legends, its wonders, its people, and its enduring beauty. It recounts the six-month, 20,000-mile journey around and across Australia that marked the author’s departure from the corporate world to pursue a writing career.Best-selling author Richard Lederer wrote of Waltzing Australia, “Cynthia Clampitt’s luminous chronicle of her love affair with Australia resonates to the heart’s deep core.”Aussie expert Barb Mackenzie wrote, “[Cynthia] paints vivid pictures of people, places and adventures. I can feel the sun, hear the crush of the bush beneath my feet and smell the salt of the sea.” Author/reviewer Helen Gallagher wrote, “Cynthia Clampitt surprises us with a writing talent and story-telling technique that is tough to master, yet she is consistently compelling to read.”Waltzing Australia will encourage those who dream, as well as those who travel. It will delight those who know Australia and enchant those who do not. Readers will come to know Australia intimately. From cities to wilderness, rainforest to desert, seashore to outback, the reader is swept along as the author explores the astonishing, often-surprising, and occasionally challenging land Down Under.
