About this Event

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.

The Paterson Valley has been the source of a diverse range of products and services throughout its 200 years of European exploitation. The reader is taken through the rise and fall of many industries. The book challenges the question of longterm sustainability and what the future may hold. An essential read for anyone with an interest in the Australian landscape and environment.

Books will be available for purchase and signing.
