Book Description and Condition

Book description and condition

The voices in these extracts represent a vast array of experiences, perspectives and knowledge - from Dampier and Tasman to contemporary scientists, farmers and environmentalists. From settlers, explorers and stockmen to itinerants, anthropologists and artists. They are men and women in awe of the landscape or cursing it, aspiring to subdue and exploit it or finding themselves defeated by it. These pieces come from

diaries, memoirs, journals, histories, poems, fiction and depict journeys, work, recreation, religious observance, uncanny events, creation and destruction. They look at the landscape and climate, and the way we have perceived them; at our deep and sentimental connection to the land, and our equally deep ignorance and abuse of it. They consider the myths and legends, the enchantments, the flora and fauna, the waterways and colours. 243 x 60mm., pp. 12 (preliminaries), 416, black & white and colour plates, notes on contributors. Hard cover in dust jacket. NEW.
