A powerful account of Indigenous land management, Fire Country delves deep into the Australian landscape and environmental challenges. Indigenous land management expert Victor Steffensen examines how the revival of cultural burning practices, and improved 'reading' of country, could help to restore our land.
Fascinated by traditional cultural and ecological knowledge, Steffensen further developed his knowledge after meeting two Elders, George Musgrave and Tommy George, who were to become his mentors and teach him the importance of cultural burning. Developed over many generations, this knowledge shows clearly that Australia actually needs fire. An unassuming and honest read, Fire Country demonstrates the incredibly sophisticated and complex cultural knowledge that has been passed down, its value to the broader community and Steffensen genuine desire to share this knowledge with others.
