Although Australia lost one of its last great nation-building visionaries when Emeritus Professor Lance Endersbee passed away on 1 October 2009, he left an immortal legacy in his body of brilliant ideas for national economic developments, the Melbourne to Darwin fast-freight railway, the Australian Ring Railway, the Clarence River Scheme, to name just a few.

A Voyage of Discovery was the late engineer's labour of love, its title perfectly capturing his insatiable spirit for scientific inquiry that drove Lance his entire life.

In its 264 colour-illustrated pages, it covers Lance's unique contributions to scientific knowledge, including in the areas of underground water, land subsidence and natural climate change, as well as Lance's open-minded inquiry into subjects such as the plate tectonics and the expanding earth, and the origins of the moon.

 A Voyage of Discovery is a must-read for anyone interested in ideas to shape the future, and it will make a great gift for family and friends.
