King of the Wilderness

King of the Wilderness: 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.
