Riassunto: For the many thousands of visitors who head to Australia each year, and the millions of armchair travelers who want to learn more about the land Down Under, this collection of stories will captivate and enchant. Australia is too big to comprehend. It's too barren, too rich, too foreign, too far away—which of course is also why it's so appealing. The island-country-continent baffles the imagination through its mere presence—it's age, aridity, the searing red of its deserts, the luminescent green of its rain forests, the deep blues of its tropical seas, the crisp clarity of its ethereal light. Australia entices, sedues, and seeps into the bloodstream until there's no choice to go see for yourself.
