An extremely timely and beautiful picture book about the effects of drought and climate change in the Mallee.

The first people of the land call the Mallee Nowie . It means sunset country. When the sun goes down the red heat of the day bleeds into the sky and sets it on fire. Drought and rain - life under a Mallee Sky.

This poetic text by emerging author Jodi Toering is beautifully accompanied by lush oil paintings by fine artist and illustrator Tannya Harricks.
