In the center of Australia lies a strange desert wilderness called the Dead Heart. It is difficult to imagine that anything can exist in such a harsh place. But the Dead Heart has a secret: it holds amazing stories of adaptation and survival. Follow in the footsteps of early explorers such a Charles Sturt and learn what the indigenous people of Australia have long known: not all is quite as it seems.
