Product description

Review

'Loving Country reveals page after page of both the ancient and contemporary knowledges of these magnificent places, leaving you feeling equal parts wonder and despair. It is a beautifully composed, riveting read scaffolded by Pascoe’s signature commitment to watertight research of the colonial archives. Shukuroglou’s unpretentious photography showcases the raw, intrinsic beauty of Country. This book will leave you famished for red earth, rainforests, billabongs and big sky Country.’ – Shannon Foster, D'harawal Knowledge Keeper, PhD Candidate and Lecturer UTS

‘Tales across Australia of discovery and loss. In Loving Country you discover how rich are the landscapes and creatures of Aboriginal Australia, how much we have lost by mistreating [them], how much remains to be found, and how welcome you will be in seeking it. Travel alert with this book. See the country – then you will feel it.’ – Bill Gammage, author of The Biggest Estate on Earth
