201 pp.Very light edgewear to illustrated covers. A little scuffing to lower edge of text block. Internally as new. Black-and-white photos in the text. References. "The storytellers are pastoralists and graziers, opal miners, environmentalists, former city people who now propagate indigenous plants, Aboriginal men and women. The stories begin in the Kimberley in northern Western Australia and trace an imaginary line across the continent to Victoria's Western District. Each storyteller knows intimately the particular beauty and complexity of his or her 'country'. All despair about the terrible damage done by hardworking settlers who did not understand the fragility of this ancient land. All are working at practical ways of balancing our modern economic needs with our vulnerable environment."
