Trees That Call Australia Home
2008. First edition. A near fine copy only marked by light finger soiling to the edges of the text block.
A spiritual, cultural, environmental and economic celebration of Australian trees - trees that, according to author John Halkett are increasingly vital as humanity searches for solutions to climate change, renewable energy and more sustainable lifestyles in the 21st century. Despite being thought of as 'the wide brown land' Australia has a diverse, unique and precious heritage of trees and forest communities. Their contribution to our welfare and sense of what it is to be Australian is immense. In saluting the amazing qualities, geographic spread, botanical complexity and the special Australianness of our trees and their forest homes, this book recognises the importance of trees to continuing human existence and survival in Australia and across the globe.
