In Search of Space: Jour­neys in Wild Places

Ross Brown­scombe, For­ever Wild Press, $45

Australian Geographic - - The List -

NA­TURE WRIT­ING HAS long been lack­ing on the Aus­tralian lit­er­ary scene. Ross Brown­scombe here dis­tils decades of ex­plor­ing wild places in Australia and Alaska into jewel-like es­says that glow with love for the bush. His ad­ven­tures in­clude an in­trepid raft trip down an Alaskan river and hik­ing the South Coast Track in Tas­ma­nia. Bob Brown’s fore­word praises the book’s “out­stand­ing con­tri­bu­tion to Aus­tralian wilder­ness lit­er­a­ture”. Avail­able at
