'Compelling, multifarious and essential.' - Don Watson 'Drink in its wisdom.' - Andrew Leigh MP On this ancient continent, waves of people have made their mark on the landscape; in turn, it too has shaped them.

If we look afresh at our history through the land we live on, might Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians find a path to a shared future?

An epic exploration of our relationship with this country, Landscapes of Our Hearts takes us from the Great Barrier Reef to the Central Desert, the High Country to Canberra's Limestone Plains. It is a book of hope and offers the possibility that a renewed connection to the landscape and to each other could pave the way towards reconciliation.

It will change the way you see this land.
