Synopsis

Highly regarded in geological circles but still unknown to a general public, Robert Logan Jack was a Scottish geologist who migrated to Australia in 1877. He worked as Government Geologist in Queensland for almost thirty years and was sent on difficult and perilous expeditions to some of the remotest parts of the continent. It was during this time that he made groundbreaking discoveries that would help advance Queensland's mining and agricultural industries and contribute to the economic development of the Colony. Putting Queensland on the Map is the first book to chronicle Robert Logan Jack's extraordinary life and work. Written by his great-granddaughter Felicity Jack, it uses maps, drawings, letters and photographs to offer a fascinating glimpse into Robert Logan Jack's geological expeditions and the social conditions of rural Queensland in the late nineteenth century.
