Stepping Off: Rewilding and Belonging in the South-West


By Thomas M. Wilson

As I grew up, it became apparent to me that I didn’t really understand the natural environment of the place where I was born. I found myself wishing that my parents had given me a book that revealed to me my homeland beyond the suburbs and the city.

Stepping Off is a book for locals and travellers alike. It is the story of the south-western corner of Western Australia: an environmental history, a social history, an invitation to reconnect with the land – and in doing so, to reconnect with ourselves.
