Fires, Farms and Forests
Robert Onfray, has written his first book “Fires, Farms and Forests”. It is a fascinating human regional history which brings to life the rich past of Surrey Hills, a unique tract of land in north-west Tasmania.
Surrey Hills supports a wide range of significant cultural and environmental values. It is home to some of the oldest cultural artefacts in north-west Tasmania. Robert has worked in many forests across eastern Australia for over 33 years and spent 14 years managing Surrey Hills, including significant programs conserving threatened species, many of which he details in the book.
“Fires, Farms and Forests” is meticulously researched and a must read for anyone interested in Australian human history and land management.
The book will be available late September from leading bookstores and direct from the publisher, Forty South.
