About this book

A new edition of this classic, thirty years on. Here is a contentious story of men and their passion for land; of occupation and settlement; of destruction and growth. By following the tracks of these pioneers who crossed the Blue Mountains into northern New South Wales, Eric Rolls - poet, farmer and self-taught naturalist - has written the history of European settlement in Australia. Includes Tom Griffiths' seminal essay, "The writing of a million wild acres".
