About this book

Tim Flannery writes a love letter to Australia, his homeland, drawing on three decades of extensive travel, research and field work to reveal its unique nature. Flannery shows how the kangaroo is inseparable from the environment that created it. And he reveals the vast continent to be a land of subtlety and complexity that becomes comprehensible to those who take the time to learn its hidden and ancient languages.
