An evening with award winning author Bill Gammage

The Upper Lachlan Landcare AGM and Dinner with Guest speaker Bill Gammage:

Friday 23rd November Breadalbane Hall 6.30pm for AGM (Talk starting at approximately 7pm followed by dinner)
Award winning author and Historian Bill Gammage will be our guest speaker for the evening talking about his latest book  “The Biggest Estate on Earth- How Aborigines made Australia” which won the $100,000 Victorian Prize for Literature as well as the Prime Minister’s Literary Award for Australian history and the Queensland literary award for history.   “Gammage is determined to open our eyes to the fact that in 1788 there was no wilderness, but a landscape that reflected a sophisticated, successful and sensitive farming regime integrated across the Australian landmass. Fire was not an indiscriminate tool of fuel reduction or grass promotion, but carefully employed to ensure certain plants and animals flourished, to facilitate access and rotation, and to ensure resources were abundant, convenient and predictable”
(James Boyce in THE MONTHLY)
Bill is a highly sought after speaker and you can find many interviews with him on the web such as http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/sundayextra/newsmaker/4047386
