Blackstone Chronicles

Product Details


All started by a serendipitous encounter with a white-faced heron, this story of thoughtful, determined place making tests the practicality of ecological sustainability as an everyday matter. Describing efforts to "live lightly" on a remote 55-acre homestead on Tasmania's Bruny Island, John Cameron is both yeoman and philosopher, scientist and poet. Cameron offers a deeply resonant affirmation to the question of whether a "life of limitations" might also foster "richness and abundance." Vicki King's haunting illustrations beautifully compliment Cameron's narrative and point to "mysteries we can enter into and begin to find 'our way around' inside of." This book is a significant contribution to the literature on a lived environmental ethic. Professor David Seamon, Editor, Environmental and Architectural Phenomenology No-one writes place like John Cameron writes place. Science is his home. Spirit is his home. The world of complex ideas is his home. But beyond the analytic and creative rigour that all this entails, John Cameron's sensibilities remain grounded, sensate, alive to the intricacies and particularities of his chosen home ground. His is a wisdom of primal wonder - of delight in the vernacular currents to be found not just here, but flowing into a deeper planetary understanding. These are the essays of a singular intelligence - essays to challenge, to illuminate, to amaze. Dr Pete Hay, poet, essayist and place scholar
