45 Days: Walking the Bibbulmun Track is about the 1,000–kilometre Bibbulmun Track in Western Australia, which crosses the vast and varied southern part of that state with its breathtaking views and hidden pockets of undisturbed beauty. The book weaves together the drama, the humour, the elation and the challenges of walking one thousand kilometres in all kinds of weather and through all kinds of terrain.
Why would anyone in their right mind choose to walk one thousand kilometres through blistering heat, freezing cold and torrential rain; along seemingly never–ending, isolated, sandy beaches; over hills and boulders, many of them masquerading as mountains; through dense bush and forests or across open, windswept plains? Why would anyone want to remove themselves from all the warm and cosy creature comforts we normally take so completely for granted?. . .
The answer, of course, is in the book.

“. . . this is a most enjoyable read especially if you are adventurous and like learning about another country. The book is about the daily trek thru the Bibbulmun Track in southwest Australia. You feel like you are travelling with Diane and her son – I felt relief each day when they found their shelter for the night – and admired their perseverance thru all the challenges on the trek. The book took me away from city life and right into wild and raw nature. I learned so much about the habitat of Australia and it made me wonder how it would feel to be so engulfed by just nature. The trek made me think about what I could do to challenge myself. The pictures and maps included in the book were wonderful and added to the narrative.” MMP, USA
