The Flaming Desert: Arid Australia – A Fire Shaped Landscape


2 in stock

This important book summarises a lifetime of observation and thinking by Australia’s most experienced arid zone botanist. The Flaming Desert is complimentary too, but travels a different journey to Katz’s own Bushfires and Bushtucker. Peter Latz is uniquely placed to offer the kind of insights that the Flaming Desert Conveys. Born and brought up among Aboriginal people, his ability to read country and landscapes is exceptional. Latz’ approach is refreshingly informal, making the unfamiliar familiar and personally meaningful. The Flaming Desert is one of the best natural histories of Arid Australia yet written.
