Douglas Lockwood was the Darwin correspondent for the Melbourne Herald newspaper for more than 20 years, from 1941 to 1968, with time away for war
service and in the Herald's London office. In that time he wrote 13 books - most are now out of print.
Lockwood's son - Kim in conjunction with Westprint - has commenced a program to republish many of these books. This is the first to have been republished with notes from Kim on the fate of many of the characters mentioned by his father in the original edition.
Each title to be republished will have a limited run of 100 numbered hard cover copies with around 400 softcover copies being printed.
