Author(s): T R GARNETT
This is an anthology of articles written by Tommy Garnett for 'The Age' over 15 years in his weekly column 'From the Country'. These provocative articles went beyond basic gardening issues to question a wide range of environmental and cultural assumptions. We see Garnett at his best, revealing a truly enquiring mind and wicked sense of humour. Seddon's commentaries traverse a wide range of themes to illustrate how Garnett, among others, ushered in a new environmental ethos -- which in turn has contributed to our better understanding today -- of what it is to be an Australian.
