Fire and the Story of Burning Country

40.00

Fire and the Story of Burning Country celebrates the tradition of fire practiced by Australia's First Peoples for thousands of years. Peter McConchie tells the story of how fire is used by Indigenous people across Australia to prevent wildfires through cool burning, a technique that has been applied to the Australian landscape for tens of thousands of years to cleanse and rejuvenate the land.

The book was written in response to the Back Saturday bushfires of 2009 in the hope that Australia may change our view of our connection to land.
