  • Island Home

    A beautiful, well written book that speaks to us Australians of the land we know so little about. A wonderful read, stirring the spiritual within me and making me long to visit the vast lands that I inhabit such a small part of. Thank you Tim Winton! You have inspired me.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • My Island Home

    I've been to a number of places mentioned in this book, I should have read before going to have a better understanding of the places.

  • Sparkling

    Tim Winton turns his prodigious talent and his thoughtfulness into a study of Australia's wildness and the urgent need to protect it, connect to it, own it and be owned by it. Less environmental manifesto and more love song imbued with compassion and a desire to have the land determine our actions rather than our actions determine the land, (a profound stubbornness that results in unsustainable pillaging and destruction) Winton urges us to face up to who we could be and to welcome country and our first people before we have destroyed it all.

    Thanks for your feedback!
