The MAGIC VALLEY
The Magic Valley is a detailed study compiled over 40 years living and working in the Paterson Valley. It analyses the relationship between humans and their environment, starting with the impacts of Aboriginal land management and how this unwittingly benefitted the invading Europeans and their herds and flocks.
Highlands to the Limestone Plains
This book explains why over 5,000 Scottish Highlanders emigrated to Australia around 1840. In doing so it examines how the author’s forebears lived in the Highlands, what it meant to be a Highlander and their subsequent life on the Limestone Plains, the locality which was to become Canberra.
