This text offers an alternative account of the history of the Australian environment and the lessons to be learned for conservation in the next millennium. Spanning 50,000 years, it explores the myths that abound in scientific and popular writing, and the theories about the place of humans in the ecology of this vast landmass. In particular, the author demolishes the widely accepted orthodoxy about the use of fire by Aborigines and their supposed part in the extinction of the Australian megafauna.
