viii + 135 pages including b/w illustrations. There is always a drought somewhere in Australia, a drought in which animals die of thirst and starvation or in which valuable crops and pastures wither. Drought losses are re?ected in every pocket and bank account in the nation. The author says, ‘lt seems as though we have grown accustomed to drought, and in doing so we have grown accustomed to a wickedness and a cruelty and a ?nancial loss that in 500 years’ time will cause the history readers to gasp in astonishment. They will know ‘us as a people who seldom cared for the huge ?ocks they fed on or by whom they were made richer, when those same ?ocks perished and starved in their millions, year after year after year.’ This book lifts the lid on a dozen controversial drought issues, indicts the overdraft system of money lending for farmers and graziers, is relentlessly critical of bad land management but offers alternatives and solutions to some of the problems contained in the complex question of Australian droughts. One thing is certain ... you won't read this book without a sense of shame and having read it you will know the ?erce, destructive power of droughts, and how much they are costing you, whether you live on the land or in the city. Moderate wear in the cover and small stains in the front edges.
