    'Australia is a land of fire. Fire has shaped its landscapes and played a role in the evolution of its plants and animals. Aboriginal people have always made and managed fire, in the domestic hearth and as an aid to hunting.

    This is both a book of art and a first-hand account of desert people's understanding and use of fire in inland Australia.

    The author, a renowned artist from the Great Sandy desert, shows, through his minimalist drawings and compact, vivid descriptions, how desert people make fire and when and why they burn.' (publishers' note)
