Don Watson grew up in the bush around Gippsland in Victoria and traces his and other families’ fortunes in the good times and bad. He recognizes the struggles to survive and the grim determination to chop down and shoot anything that stood in the way of making the land pay for itself. Somehow he has produced an ode to the bush which is also an environmental manifesto.
