Back from the Brink nominated for Australian Book Award

Postby duane » Sun Aug 19, 2007 1:11 pm

The Age has shortlisted Peter's book for the Australian Book of the Year.

It is one of five books shortlisted in the non fiction category. Here's what The Age has to say:

Back from the Brink: How Australia's Landscape Can Be Saved
Peter Andrews
ABC Books

This is environmental writing at its most literate and accessible. In a methodical, lucid manner, Peter Andrews addresses the critical issues of land and water management in Australia. If our crisis is to be resolved, he suggests, we must raise our historical consciousness and understand the "original systems" of the Australian landscape as they relate to water movement and fertility.

Andrews' impassioned, empirical and systematic approach, outlined in this book, could actively facilitate the process of recovery. His arguments and research will help enlighten and persuade the general reader far more effectively than any alarmist, "doomsday" accounts.

Peter's book was shortlisted with four other books in the Non Fiction category but was unsuccessful. Still it was tremendous honour to be selected...'close but no cigar!'
