Australian farmer Rob Cook

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:20 pm on 16 June 2011

Rob Cook has battled frostbite, heavy rain and a menacing wild bull in an epic 700-kilometre trek across the Tanami Desert, from the remotest cattle station in the country to Alice Springs - in a wheelchair. Rob is a quadraplegic who took on the challenge of crossing the desert to raise money for his Nuffield Scholarship, which gives farmers the chance to travel abroad.
