Country is about the unique nature of Australia and about Flannery's own journey toward understanding it. Travelling thousands of kilometres, he encounters Aboriginal cultures and examines Europeans trying to understand this land. He begins to understand how Australia's deserts and rainforests have shaped human responses to the continent, and how kangaroos have evolved to handle the intricate challenges of the island. Flannery's remarkable enquiry into the evolution of the kangaroo is the centrepiece of the book.
Spanning several decades of Flannery's life, the book recounts his early discovery of palaeontology, and how he comes to find his home in the world of the museum. Reading Country it's impossible not to feel the excitement of a passionate researcher. Funny, easy to read and full of interesting information, this is a remarkable book by a wonderful writer.
