About the Author

Brad Collis is one of Australias most credible historical writers. In addition to the enduringly popular SNOWY history, he is also the author of the acclaimed history of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation -- Fields of Discovery, launched in 2002 by the Australian Prime Minister John Howard, who noted at the time that Collis had mastered, compellingly, the history of the two most dominant influences of Australias development as a modern nation; the Snowy Scheme and the CSIRO.
