About this product
- DescriptionStories and phrases can powerfully shape the ways in which we experience and manage our environment. What languages have been used to characterize Australian landscapes and how have they influenced the way we see and treat our environment? This work answers this question and more, while exploring the inter-relationship between Australia's landscape and language. It covers a collection of essays whose subjects range from the Ord River in the far rth-west to Antarctica in the south, from the centre to the coast, the prehistoric to the present. Its terrain is both environmental and cultural, political and poetic.
- Author BiographyTim Bonyhady is an art historian and environmental lawyer whose books include Places Worth Keeping and The Colonial Earth. Tom Griffiths is a cultural and environmental historian whose books include Hunters and Collectors and Secrets of the Forest. They are both senior fellows at the Australian National University in Canberra where they worked together on their acclaimed Prehistory to Politics: John Mulvaney, the Humanities and the Public Intellectual.
