Country is a panoramic book about a scientist and a continent. In this, his most personal book yet, Tim Flannery writes a love letter to our great land, drawing on three decades of extensive travel, research and field work to reveal its unique nature. As he describes his own passionate encounters with the land and its people, Flannery pays particular attention to the evolution of Australia’s most distinctive animal, the kangaroo. He shows us how the destiny of this extraordinary creature is inseparable from the environment which created it. The kangaroo may seem as familiar to us as the eucalypt or the desert, a symbol on a road sign or the tail of a passenger plane, but readers of Country will never see our national emblem in the same way again.
