Jean Christopher de Lancourt, an enigmatic "French" traveller, raconteur, and soldier, wrote of his experiences while walking around Australia for a wager.

Bill de Burgh has collected and annotated the articles commissioned by his uncle at The West Australian. Accused of being a bludger, rogue and spy, in language today reserved for erring historians, he eventually fell out with his companion in N Q.

This resulted in some surprising revelations. It is still not known who he really was, or what was his eventual fate.

De Lancourt is one of those many mystery characters of the bush. Included are his Arnhem Land Aboriginal legends.
