An Explorer's Notebook is an exhilarating selection of Tim Flannery's essays and articles written over a period of twenty-five years. In them we see his evolution from the young scientist doing fieldwork in remote locations to the major thinker who has changed the way we all think about climate and the threat that global warming presents to our planet.

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.
