Alice Thomson (au)
The story of the man who strung the telegraph across Australia, & the woman who gave her name to Alice Springs. In 1855 Charles Todd set off from England to Australia as Govít. Astronomer & Supít. of Telegraphs for S. Australia. His goal was to string a telegraph wire across one of the last great uncrossed colonial wildernesses & to connect Australia with Britain. Alice, his guardianís 18-year-old daughter, offered herself as his partner in this venture. Racing against time & financial penalty clauses, dogged by diseases, Toddís men paused to found Alice Springs, before heading north towards Darwin, to join up with the undersea cable from Java. ďAn irresistible mix of family history, exploration, scientific discovery & Victorian derring-do.Ē Illus.
