Old Land, New Landscapes - A Story of Farmers, Conservation, and the Landcare Movement

Author(s): Christopher Williams


"Old Land, New Landscapesis the story of a farming community fighting to rehabilitate land degraded by more than a century of farming. Chris Williams tells of the trials and triumphs of the Sutherland family and other volunteers based around Peak Hill in central western New South Wales, as they set out to restore native vegetation and create the Genaren Hill wildlife sanctuary. This authoritative and engaging book is essential reading for farmers and Landcare scheme participants, but will also appeal to those who enjoy reading about the Australian bush and the resourceful characters who live there."
