Ambitions Unfinished

Ambitions Unfinished

David Wynford Carnegie’s expeditions could very easily have been included in previously-published Western Australian Exploration volumes To The Golden Land or Due North, however, the Series Editors determined that his significant contribution to exploration in Western Australian  deserved a discrete Volume.

This prestigious Volume is not a reprint of the classic Spinifex and Sand. It is, however, a reproduction of all known/extant and relevant diaries, letters, speeches and other communications by David Carnegie.

Ambitions Unfinished presents all the material from which he produced that excellent book, however, it includes lots more – unpublished diaries, letters, sketches and notes not previously seen. These give great insight into Carnegie’s inner thoughts, psyche, disposition, aspirations, and his love of family, as well as demonstrating his artistic talent and geographic knowledge.

This Volume is expected to be published in 2022.
