Words for Country by Tim Bonyhady
Book DescriptionStories and phrases can powerfully shape the ways in which we experience and manage our environment. What languages have been used to characterize Australian landscapes and how have they influenced the way we see and treat our environment? This work answers this question and more, while exploring the inter-relationship between Australia's landscape and language. It covers a collection of essays whose subjects range from the Ord River in the far north-west to Antarctica in the south, from the centre to the coast, the prehistoric to the present. Its terrain is both environmental and cultural, political and poetic.

From high society in Vienna to a small flat in Sydney; from patrons of the arts to refugees from the Holocaust; this is the enthralling story of three generations of women spanning a century of upheaval.
Colonial Earth, Paperback (October 1998)» View all books by Tim Bonyhady
Drawing on sources dating from the First Fleet until federation - from paintings and poems to reports of public meetings and parliamentary debates - this text shows that an enviromental aesthetic is as deep-set in the Australian culture as the inability to turn environmental concern into practice.
