Remembering Country: history and memories of Towarri National Park

All landscapes have a human history. Conservation reserves, which are often seen as 'undisturbed' or 'untouched', are no different.

This book celebrates people's connections to landscape - in particular, to a small area of land in the Upper Hunter which is now part of Towarri National Park. An innovative and lively local history, it will interest historians, heritage practitioners, students and many others.

Through people's lives, their work and their connection to land, we see how the act of remembering country can evoke feelings of pleasure, joy, regret or pain. Bringing the stories of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people together, this is an important work of reconciliation.
