Local author John Blay has released his new book Wild Nature:  Walking Australia’s South East Forests following on from the successful On Track and Back Country books.

Wild Nature: Walking Australia’s South East Forests by John Blay

John Blay laces up his walking boots once again and goes bush to explore Australia’s rugged south east forests – stretching from Canberra to the coast and on to Wilsons Promontory – in a great circle from his one-time home near Bermagui.

In Wild Nature, the bestselling author of On Track charts the forests’ shared history, their natural history, the forest wars, the establishment of the South East Forests National Park and the threats that continue to dog their existence, including devastating bushfires. Along the way Blay asks the big questions. What do we really know about these wild forests? How did the forests come to be the way they are? What is the importance of wild nature to our civilisation?
