Thirst

Beyond climate tipping points there is the time of The Failing. Harry Sinclair, aging exCeo of Clearwater Corporation, travels the fringes of an everexpanding Australian desert. Perched on a dray pulled by his only companion, a fractious camel, Harry is haunted by his past as a water prospector who, in the search for water, drove the beleaguered inhabitants of the west from their lands.

A gentle and hauntingly beautiful clifi roadtrip, Thirst meanders through an outback broken by unending drought. Interwoven through a vast Australian landscape, Thirst explores the future challenges caused by our present inaction on climate change and our overexploitation of natural resources and, at its conclusion, reveals a glimmer of hope at the chaotic end of the 21st century.

Iso and the Bushfire

“Iso and the Bushfire” is a children’s story like few others. A tale of a young bandicoot’s first experience with a bushfire burning through her heath-land home. Written from a uniquely ecological perspective the story introduces young readers to the cycles of nature, the Australian bush, and its unique plants and animals, through their experiences with a destructive but vital force in the ecological cycle – bushfire. Currently this book is out of stock.

The books illustrator, Fusae Ikeda is a Sydney based graphic artist. Fusae's strong Japanese aesthetic and her more recent life in Australia give the books illustrations a distinctive beauty all of their own.
