Loving Country

$44

A Guide to Sacred Australia

Written by Bruce Pascoe and Vicky Shukuroglou

Hardcover

Loving Country is a powerful and essential guidebook that offers a new way to travel and discover Australia through an Indigenous narrative. In this beautifully designed and photographed edition, co-authors Bruce Pascoe and Vicky Shukuroglou, in consultation with communities and Elders across Australia, show travellers how to see the country as herself, to know her whole and old story, and to find the way to fall in love with her, our home.
Featuring 18 places in detail, from the ingenious fish traps at Brewarrina and the rivers that feed the Great Barrier Reef, to the love stories of Wiluna and the whale story of Margaret River, there is so much to celebrate. This immersive book covers history, Dreaming stories, traditional cultural practices, Indigenous tours and the importance of recognition and protection of place. It offers keys to unlock the heart of this loving country for those who want to enrich their understanding of our continent, and for travellers looking for more than a whistle-stop tour of Australia.
"Loving Country reveals page after page of both the ancient and contemporary knowledges of these magnificent places, leaving you feeling equal parts wonder and despair. It is a beautifully composed, riveting read scaffolded by Pascoe’s signature commitment to watertight research of the colonial archives. Shukuroglou’s unpretentious photography showcases the raw, intrinsic beauty of Country. This book will leave you famished for red earth, rainforests, billabongs and big sky Country. -- Shannon Foster, D'harawal Knowledge Keeper, PhD Candidate and Lecturer UTS ― The Conversation

Fabulous book

Bought this as part of a gift for my dad who loves to travel around Australia. He has enjoyed learning about the rich history of the land and it’s people. He calls me up to share new facts - love that it has allowed him to gain a deeper understanding of our beautiful country as well as providing insight into places already visited and those yet to be explored.
