Book caption: "Another adverse factor in the Great Victoria is recurrent drought. At the time of the writer's first visit, much of the country was dying or dead, and rainfall records showed that there had recently been a period of 40 months - more than 3 years - during which only one effective fall of rain had been received. This area evidently was formerly a stand of mulga like that in Fig 4.32, but almost all of it had died of the drought. This of course would be completely disastrous for any pastoral occupation. On the Gunbarrel Highway, 1966.".
