Charlie Schultz was born in Charters Towers, Queensland, in 1908. At nineteen years of age, Charlie was thrust into the role of owner and manager of Humbert River Station in the Victoria River district. In 1941, after years of struggle and loneliness, Charlie was able to clear the debt on the property. In the same year, he married Hessie Graham and together they worked for the next three decades to create one of the showpiece stations in the Northern Territory. Hessie Schultz died in 1979. In 1997, two years after the first publication of his book, Charlie Schultz died in Prosperine, Queensland. Beyond the Big Run, co-authored by Darrell Lewis, was re-released by UQP in 2002.
