Description - Returning to Nothing by Peter B. Read

This book examines what it means to lose a place forever and why we return, and keep on returning, to these places so large in our memories. It considers many lost towns, suburbs and homes: Darwin after Cyclone Tracy, the flooding of the town of Adaminaby in NSW, the inundation of Lake Pedder in Tasmania, bushfire at Macedon in Victoria, migration from other countries, the clearing of neighborhoods for freeways and the everyday circumstances that force people from their land. It establishes how important the places we live in are, and how much we grieve when we lose them.
