AbstractHistoryArchive Description

"Where I belong is the ninth collection of children's writing and art published as part of 'Special forever: an environmental communications project', a joint project of the Murray-Darling Basin Commission and the Primary English Teaching Association.

Within this anthology the voices of children from schools all over the million square kilometres of the Murray-Darling Basin come together to celebrate the physical, social and spiritual landscapes which they inhabit and know so well. Their contributions draw upon their experiences, knowledge and understandings of the land and the challenges faced by them and their communities as they work toward a sustainable future for this region of Australia. The vitality and freshness of their words and picture communicate a deep and abiding sense of belonging to the land and a shared responsibility for its future." (Source: back cover)
