Rate this:
A recollection of his assignment in outback Australia, this narrative describes wildlife photographer and writer Mitch Reardon's journey to find and save the magnificent Brolga birds--Australia's only native crane. As he progresses through some of the nation's wildest and remote country--from the wilderness of Cape York Peninsula where the sprawling rivers, billabongs, lakes, and swamps of Lakefield National Park support vast assemblages of wetland birds to Bool Lagoon in South Australia, the last stronghold of the southern Brolgas--Reardon discovers that the birds have almost disappeared from these habitats. A treatise on the complexities involved in balancing conservation efforts with the needs of human productivity, this intimate yet moving examination touches upon the interconnectedness of all things and makes a case for enlightened coexistence between people and the natural world.
