This anthology is a comprehensive collection of works, in English and Polish, about the internationally recognised explorer and scientist Sir Paul Edmund Strzelecki, and his friendship with his Aboriginal travelling companions.

The anthology unites existing publications about Strzelecki by the most authoritative writers with new material that delves into many of the debates surrounding existing historiography. It reveals new facets of the famous Pole's character and achievements. The anthology also highlights the traveller's remarkable concern for Indigenous Australians, focussing particularly on his Aboriginal guides Jackey and Charlie Tarra.

A collection of essays, articles, poems, and other works, the anthology is unique in its scope and depth. It also features a rich assortment of artworks and photographs that contributes to iconography about Strzelecki.

"This carefully published anthology contains many illustrations, as well as colour reproductions of the prize-winning artworks from the festival [2009 Kosciuszko Festival] competition. Most importantly, though, it includes articles, reviews and essays about Strzelecki and Kosciuszko, as well as the people related to them not only in their private lives, but also in literature describing their adventures."
Marek Baterowicz
