With The Sun On My Back is a book of urgent and absorbing interest to all Australians, and to people in other parts of the world who know little of the vast and sparsely settled region lying above the Tropic Of Capricorn. That the book is also a notable addition to the literature of Australia about Australia is confirmed by the award made to it. From 1947 to 1950 Mr Ewers combed the North mainly on assignment for the Australian Geographical Society and walkabout. His travels ranged from the iron islands of Yampi South in the west to Cairns and the beautiful Atherton Tableland in the East. He studied aborginal corroborees at Delissaville with the Australian dancer, Ted Shawn, camped with Bill Harney among 200 natives on Melville Island, travelled the tracks of Kimberleys, hitch-hiked up and down the Stuart Highway, and examined the colourful centre.
