What is it really like in Australia's high
country? Matthew Higgins traces the mountain experience in a rich variety of
ways. Firstly he talks of his own time s
in the alps as a bushwalker, cross-country skier, historian, and oral-history
interviewer. Then, he profiles a
range of people who have worked, lived, or played
in the mountains: stockmen, skiers, Indigenous parks officers, rangers, brumby
runners, foresters, authors, tourism operators, and others. The centra l
themes of place, people, and story are interwoven with concerns about
environmental impact and climate change. An extensive collection of beautiful
images helps to tell the magnificent mountain story, from Kosciuszko to
Kiandra, Brindabella to Bimberi and Bogong, to Tidbinbilla and beyond.
