Written by one of Australia’s best loved poets, Judith Wright, this compilation presents her best work from 1946 to her last collection, published in 1986. Devoted to place and responsive to landscape and to the violence toward the land and its inhabitants, this poetry collection is alive with natural and human history. Making the local universal, this remarkable account celebrates Australia.
