King Of The Wilderness.

Christobel Mattingley.


The life of Deny King

There seemed to be nothing Deny King couldn't do. He was a painter, a tin miner, an environmentalist and collector – Banksia kingii was named in his honour. He spent fifty years living self-sufficiently in the rugged Tasmanian south-west and became internationally renowned for his exploits on land and sea. King of the Wilderness brings to life a man of strength and ingenuity, a man who made an indelible impression on everyone who met him.

'Deny King, whose life has been beautifully described by Christobel Mattingley, is very much in the tradition of Thoreau and Banfield. I think he surpassed both of them in his heroic commitment to wilderness living and the sheer range of his talents and achievements. Compared to Deny King they had it easy ... This excellent biography will help a new generation to understand a remarkable Australian.'
