Synopsis: The Battle for the Kokoda Track is Australia's Alamo. If Gallipoli symbolized the ANZAC spirit in WWI, then Kokoda is its WWII equivalent. In August 1942 Kokoda was a killing field. Today, it is hard to imagine what those young men endured for our freedom but the journey gives some clues. The track plays a leading role in the story of Kokoda.  It is one of the world's most fascinating locations—at once an alluring, challenging obstacle of compelling beauty and yet a foreboding, perilous microcosm of life at its rawest and most savage. In Kokoda Spirit, Patrick Lindsay takes us on a journey that explores the track as it is today and how it was in 1942. With his unique storytelling he reconnects us with the past while taking us on the grueling journey that is Kokoda.

About the Author: Patrick Lindsay has been a regular visitor to PNG since 1983, and has trekked the Kokoda Track a number of times. He has worked as a presenter, reporter, and producer on network television in Australia for the past 20 years.

Book Description Hardie Grant Books, Prahran, Vic, 2009. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 247 pages, beautifully illustrated with colour and b/w photographs, index. "In 1942 a small band of young Australian soldiers overcame seemingly insurmountable odds to preserve Australia's freedom along the Kokoda Track. the jungle terrain, the climate, the disease, the exhaustion and the lack of food, clothing, medicine and ammunition all stretched the young Diggers' wills. It was as stern an examination as man or nature could devise. But Kokoda is far more than just a military campaign. Like Gallipoli, it represents a tradition - a tradition conceived at Anzac Cove and reborn in the jungles of the Owen Stanley Mountain Range in Papua New Guinea. And, like Gallipoli, the Kokoda spirit endures and inspires. Today the track represents the extraordinary qualities of the young Diggers - indomitable spirit, courage, selflessness and humour - and shows that we never know the limits of our endurance. Kokoda Spirit celebrates, the beauty and drama of the track, bringing to life its story in words and photographs both from the past and present. Relive what the men of Kokoda endured - their spirit is contagious". Book. Bookseller Inventory # 039842
