Fire Country

Fire Country (EPUB ebook)

By Steffensen, Victor

Delving deep into the Australian landscape and the environmental challenges we face, Fire Country is a powerful account from Indigenous land management expert Victor Steffensen on how the revival of Indigenous fire practices, including improved 'reading' of country and undertakin...g 'cool burns', could help to restore our nation. Victor developed a passion for traditional cultural and ecological knowledge from a young age, but it was after leaving high school that Victor met two Elders who became his mentors, particularly to revive cultural burning. Developed over many generations, this knowledge shows clearly that Australia actually needs fire - with burning done in a controlled manner - for land care and healing. Victor's story is unassuming and honest, written in a way that reflects the nature of yarning. And while some of the knowledge shared in his book may be unclear to western world views, there is much evidence that, if adopted, it could benefit all Australians. For every copy sold, Hardie Grant will donate dollar 1 to Firesticks, which empowers Indigenous fire management practitioners to revive cultural burning.
