It contains hundreds of field-tested survival methods that have saved countless lives, and could save yours.
This book was amazing. It covers the settlement history, environmental impacts, natural history, poetry, writing, and folk law of the Australian bush. 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.
