Twenty years ago, when I first arrived on the plains, I kept my eyes open. I looked for anything in the landscape that seemed to hint at some elaborate meaning behind appearances.
This is the story of the families of the plains—obsessed with their land and history, their culture and mythology—and of the man who ventured into their world.
There is no book in Australian writing like Gerald Murnane's The Plains.
