Country is a thrilling and personal book about a scientist and a continent. Tim Flannery writes a love letter to Australia, drawing on three decades of extensive travel, research and field work to reveal its unique nature.

As he describes his encounters with the land and its people, Flannery pays particular attention to the evolution of Australia's most distinctive animal, the kangaroo. He shows us how the destiny of this extraordinary creature is inseparable from the environment that created it. The kangaroo may seem as familiar to us as the eucalypt or the desert, a symbol on a road sign or the tail of a passenger plane, but readers of Country will never see our national emblem in the same way again.

'Flannery is perhaps the most gifted describer of the natural sciences writing today.' Weekend Australian
