Subtitled "An Ecological History of the Australian Lands and People" this book told me much about the country I was born in that I didn't know.
If you are an Australian you should read this book, because it contains many of the things we need to know about our real history, not that concerned only with European people and power.
We have stewardship of this land, and we are destroying it because we know nothing about it. This book will get you up to speed on the last few millenia so that you can start creating a better future.
Full of interesting and heartbreaking stories, it might make you understand why so many people are voting Green.
