Paul Collins

Burn: The Epic Story of Bushfire in Australia, Allen & Unwin, Sydney, 2006; Scribe, Melbourne, 2009

The ‘central argument’ of the book ‘is that fire is “part of the very fabric of our continent”, a positive and renewing force that Australians must learn to live with’. (review by Tom Griffiths)

Graham Parton, environmental journalist, writes about the lessons learned from fire.
