Wentworth Falls writer Andy Macqueen has a new book with inspiring tales of people in the wilderness.
Wayfaring in Wollemi: Stories of people in wilderness was launched at the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden, Mount Tomah - the only botanic garden located in a World Heritage Area.
The 140 guests were asked to remember the place Wollemi, not just the Wollemi Pine.
The Wollemi is the biggest declared wilderness in the state [4,250 sqkm]. The book by Andy Macqueen celebrates those who have wandered there, they were not lost, but looking for adventure or peace.
