Only three miles from the Sydney CBD, Middle Harbour has a mystique all its own. Unlike most Australian city environs, it still has regions of virtually untouched bushland. 'Times & Tides' ranges over the slopes, the bush and the whole catchment area of this unique - and precious - part of Australia.
Award-winning historian Gavin Souter has written an enchanting, evocative, multi-layered story that encompasses the Aboriginals, the first explorers, white settlement, geography and geology, flora and fauna, and tales of fishermen and the sea. It is also a very personal account by someone who has lived in the area all his life.
