Everyone has heard of the Flying Doctor Service, but few know the name of the person who started it all along with other services such as the bush hospitals, to help those in Australia's outback.

This is the extraordinary story of John Flynn - famous pioneer of the Australian Inland Mission - and his struggle to ease the isolation of the people of the Australian outback. Flynn's dreams for the sparsely populated Australian interior were first formed as he rode on a camel through it. By the end of his life he had seen the development of transport and communication systems, the building of Bush Hospitals and the establishment of the Flying Doctor Services.

Author, Ion (Jack) Idriess (1889-1979) was one of Australia's best-loved writers, and 'Flynn of the Inland' which was first published in 1932 has become a true classic having been through 52 editions in the 80+ years since.

The Morning Post in London wrote: 'It is impossible to read this book and remain untouched by the greatness of John Flynn's inspiration.'
