Brings together essays by many of the finest nature writers of our time, on both continents. They bring to life places that are special: wild paces, lived in, grazed, fished, explored, desert and plateau, river and ice, lyrebird and eagle. Contributors include Barbara Blackman, Charmain Clift, Tom Griffiths, Patrice Newell, Eric Rolls and Tim Winton.
This anthology brings together leading Austrialian and North American nature writers for the first time. Responding to places that sustain, inspire and sometimes sadden, the pieces are propelled by passion, anger and history. The places considered vary as much as any on earth, but what each pieces has in common with the rest is beautiful writing.
