AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Carroll argues that 'Terra Australis resists mapping. Yet in its own way it indicates to its new inhabitants that they will be favoured once they find their right relationships to it. At work, play or in everyday reverie those who dwell here might then come to find themselves supported, as by a benign presence. The country provides humans with a place simply to be. It offers its blessing.' (p.38)
