About the book

Book cover-The Blue Plateau: A Landscape Memoir by Mark Tredinnick

'A truly beautiful book, exquisite as the country it depicts' PATRICE NEWELL, author of Ten Thousand Acres

An inspired meditation on the contours of the land and its people, of time and place and family, the rhythms of nature and the rhythms of friendship, it is a book of many belongings. Here you will meet the plateau's first people; you will meet Les and Henryk and Jim; you will walk the Kedumba and the Kanimbla in drought and fire and flood.

Evocative and deeply moving, The Blue Plateau is a poet's story of an astonishing place and a loving portrait of home.
