As I grew up, it became apparent to me that I didn’t really understand the natural environment of the place where I was born. I found myself wishing that my parents had given me a book that revealed to me my homeland beyond the suburbs and the city.
Stepping Off is a book for locals and travellers alike. It is the story of the south-western corner of Western Australia: an environmental history, a social history, an invitation to reconnect with the land — and in doing so, to reconnect with ourselves.
PRAISE FOR THE BOOK
'The scope of this is ambitious – in turn flying high over four billion years of Australia’s South-West environmental history, then swooping low to examine a flower growing in a suburban Perth garden – but in knowing when to provide detail and when to summarise, Stepping Off leaves the reader more grounded, more curious, and more aware.' Limina Journal
'... Stepping Off is a combination of memoir and nature lovers’ guide to the South-West, exploring the area’s environmental and social history ...' The Hills Gazette
'... a masterly description of the south‐west of Western Australia ...' Queensland Reviewers Collective
