This is Len Beadell's inside account of the locating and development of the sites for the British Atomic Tests at Emu and Maralinga in the 1950's. With his characteristic humour and warm gentle wit, Len recounts the year-long sequence of events from his first lonely exploration of Outback South Australia to the historic detonation at Emu claypan in 1953. Despite the seriousness of the tests, this is an amusing yarn seen through the eyes of one of the few who played a part in this amazing nuclear experiment.
