Description - Looking After Country with Fire: Aboriginal Burning Knowledge With Uncle Kuu by Victor Steffensen

SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2023 WILDERNESS 'KARAJIA AWARDS FOR CHILDREN'S LITERATURE'
SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2023 WILDERNESS 'ENVIRONMENT AWARDS'

Looking After Country with Fire is a picture book for 5- to 10-year-olds that demonstrates respect for Indigenous knowledge, following the success of Victor Steffensen's bestselling adult book Fire Country.


Mother Nature has a language. If we listen, and read the signs in the land, we can understand it. 

For thousands of years, First Nations people have listened and responded to the land and made friends with fire, using this knowledge to encourage plants and seeds to flourish, and creating beautiful places for both animals and people to live. 

Join Uncle Kuu as he takes us out on Country and explains cultural burning. Featuring stunning artwork by Sandra Steffensen, this is a powerful and timely story of understanding Australia's ecosystems through Indigenous fire management, and a respectful way forward for future generations to help manage our landscapes.

At the back of the book, you will also find lyrics to a song written by author Victor Steffensen with the same title, 'Looking After Country with Fire'. 

Buy Looking After Country with Fire: Aboriginal Burning Knowledge With Uncle Kuu by Victor Steffensen from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, BooksDirect.
