Undersong: A Tasmanian journey into Country by Hilary Burden | PB
Celebrating the stories of Tasmanian landscapes and environments, through the journeys of Indigenous and non-Indigenous women, Undersong is a Tasmanian journey into Country.
What is home? What does it mean to us? In this richly evocative journey around Tasmania, Burden attempts to tune into the subtle, underlying sounds of this island’s landscape, to understand the nature of this place, our identity within it, and our shared awareness of our common past.
“Undersong is a gentle, non-linear and deeply respectful narrative that encapsulates the principles of listening to and understanding Country through the perspectives of several women who lived in Tasmania over time.” ~ Aunty Patsy Cameron
"This vivid evocation and recollection of Tasmania will appeal to many readers. The transition between natural history, literary reference and historical memorial flows evenly and compellingly." ~ Bruce Pascoe (author, Dark Emu)
