An Explorer's Notebook
Essays on Life, History & ClimateBook - 2007
Flannery writes about his journeys in the jungles of New Guinea and Irian Jaya, about the extraordinary people he met and the species he discovered. He writes about population, water and the stresses we have put on our environment. He writes about how we can try to predict our own future by learning about the profound history of life on Earth, and the threads that bind us all together as Australians.
In An Explorer's Notebook Flannery, the Australian of the Year, also writes about the challenges which face us, his fellow citizens, in dealing with the climate crisis that is now upon us.
