Tall tales and true from almost every corner of the world.The Long Road to Broome is one of those larger than life stories written by a man who has lived the kind of life every man aspires to but few achieve. The blonde haired boy from Mooloolaba whose passions in life are the sea and pearls, turned a zoology degree into a passport to travel the world, where more through good luck and an incredible sense of timing than good management, lived and worked in some of the wildest, most remote and dangerous locations on earth. With such a full and adventure-filled life, it was inevitable that he put pen to paper to record his incredible journey along his long road to Broome. There’s never a dull moment as Bill recalls the characters and places he has encountered with amazing clarity and more than a little humor and hilarity!
