    1. I have been to Australia three times, from East to West. At least I thought I had been to Australia until reading Cynthia Clampitt’s Waltzing Australia. Waltzing Australia is Cynthia Clampitt’s record of a long trip she took to the world’s largest island, the driest continent – the only nation that is a continent. Through her record we share this trip. This book is not your normal travel story…First of all Cynthia didn’t go to Australia for vacation. She didn’t go for altruistic re [...]

    3. Waltzing Australia takes the reader on a guided journey through many places in the outback country.I chose this book because my tween age son wants to go there and has wanted to for about four years. My son has dreamed and talked of Australia. I had a swap with a native of Australia and he was thrilled to have a little piece of Australia. I am having him read this journey/book also so that he can feel as if he were almost there. I can now see his fascination of it and I also now dream of going t [...]

    4. Waltzing Australia is a perfect book for the armchair traveler. The “Land Down Under” is a land of mystery and intrigue. Most of us are not familiar with the country of Australia. The little most of us know about this continent could fit into a thimble. Movies have given us a glimpse of it and many of us are familiar with the tune “Waltzing Mathilda”, a folk song made famous by Banjo Paterson. Some of us might even know what a billabong is (a small water hole in a dry area).Cynthia Clamp [...]

    5. Cynthia Clampitt had a secure job with a steady paycheck and decided to leave it all behind to pursue her dream of becoming a writer. She packed up her stuff and headed to Australia where she spent the next 6 months recording everything she saw, did and felt. She spent time in the cities but really connected with the country and bush areas of the continent. She did everything from hiking, climbing, and horseback riding to shopping, eating great food, and relaxing. She experienced as much as she [...]

    6. Cynthia's book wasn't at all what I expected when I first picked it up. I thought it would be a nice, light travelogue of some time she spent in Australia. Boy, was I surprised. First, this was no travelogue - it's an intense love story between an American city-dweller and the vast continent of Australia. It starts with an infatuation from afar, and develops over the course of five months into a deep life-long love and respect. Along the way, we are close witnesses to Cynthia's discovery of ever [...]

    7. This is such a wonderful and compelling book! As a nature photographer, I have a sense of adventure and a love of the outdoors that is shared by Cynthia and expertly conveyed to the reader along the way. I was amazed at her journey and felt I was right there with her. This book really brings to life the wonders of Australia and I admire Cynthia because of her adventurous spirit and joy in discovering all that nature has to offer.
