Edward John Eyre (5 August 1815 – 30 November 1901) was an English land explorer of the Australian continent, colonial administrator, and a controversial Governor of Jamaica. Eyre was born in Whipsnade, Bedfordshire, shortly before his family moved to Hornsea, Yorkshire, where he was christened. His parents were Rev. Anthony William Eyre and Sarah (née Mapleton). After completing grammar school at Louth and Sedbergh, he moved to Sydney rather than join the army or go to university.
I'm actually reading "The Hero As Murderer: the Life of John Edward Eyre" by Geoffrey Dutton but for some reason that doesn't come up in Goodreads. But anyway, it's really good. In fact, it's a cracker of a read. Eyre was a real on-the-edge type of explorer, literally, figuratively and geographically. Sep 10, 2013 Tattiyanna marked it as to-read. Shelves: tattiyannas-books.
