A Little Flight Reading

Archipelago: A Journey Across Indonesia

Ian Burnet, Rosenberg Press, $39.95

An article from ‘The Australian’ – January 16, Travel Section – Graham Erbacher

Is your body back at work but head and heart still on holidays? Time for a good travel book and none more engaging than Ian Burnet’s new title. He hops from island to island (Java to Timor), folowing the volcanoes that form Indonesia’s spine. Join him for his favorite Balinese meal, rice field duck “fried so crispy you can crunch on the bones”. Or feel the fear of facing a Komodo dragon. Baron Rudolf Von Reding Biberegg had the most unfortunate of encounters in 1974 after he fell behind a walking party. All they found on return was the baron’s hat, camera and a bloody shoe. On his memorial : “He loved nature throughout his life.” Burnet recounts a rule: “Nature lovers should always stick to the group, otherwise nature may love them back.”
