AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Victorian writer Christie Nieman has wrought a quintessentially modern Australian fiction from the sentiment so eloquently expressed decades earlier in Aldo Leopold’s Round river that ‘one of the penalties of an ecological edcation is that one lives alone in a world of wounds’ (1993: 165). The human cost in a country where environmental care comes 200 years too late is measured in the small story of one rural woman’s efforts to redress the harm with her own personal, self-sacrificing, and ultimately futile, action.
