Product Description
 
A picture book series about the extraordinary men and women who have shaped Australia's history, including Reverend John Flynn and the Royal Flying Doctor Service. Imagine living hundreds of kilometres from the nearest hospital or doctor. Now imagine someone in your family is sick or injured. How would you get life-saving medical help in a hurry? In the early 20th century, Reverend John Flynn saw the potential for aeroplanes to bring urgent medical care to the outback. He campaigned for more than ten years to make his big idea a reality. That big idea became the Royal Flying Doctor Service. From Ned Kelly to Nellie Melba; Captain Cook to Sidney Nolan, the Meet ... series of picture books tells the exciting stories of the men and women who have shaped Australia's history.
