Review by: Raymond Boyd Dunn on Oct. 25, 2012 : star star star star star
In February, 2003, I purchased the printed version of Richard's "Cannibals' Gold". When I rediscovered him on Smashwords I downloaded this story. Having obviously been along the tracks himself, he takes the reader on a believable 4WD journey through the wilds of Cape York Peninsular. A thoroughly enjoyable read which I could not put down until the very end.
