The Red Highway
This is the story of a quest - a journey down the red highway. On returning from a war zone, Nicolas Rothwell begins to explore the deserts and towns, sleepy coastline and hidden worlds of Australia's north. As he travels, his journey gathers in momentum and finds a shape. He has unforgettable, even mystical encounters: with a priest, an explorer, a collector and a hunter. It becomes a quest - for knowledge and a sense of home - that builds to a stunning culmination. The Red Highway explores death, friendship, travel and art, and evokes a unique and mesmerising part of the country.
