'I came to the plateau in the winter of ninety-eight. A place a thousand metres in the air ... a world of sandstone and eucalypt and unregenerate weather, a place just fallen from the sky ...' The Blue Plateau is a lyrical natural history of the Blue Mountains, and a memoir of one man's attempt to belong there. An inspired meditation on the contours of the land and its people, of time and place and family, the rhythms of nature and the rhythms of friendship, it is a book of many belongings.Here you will meet the plateau's first people; you will meet Les and Henryk and Jim; you will walk the Kedumba and the Kanimbla in drought and fire and flood. Evocative and deeply moving, The Blue Plateau is a poet's story of an astonishing place and a loving portrait of home. --Provided by publisher.
