This book by Meg Mooney and Sally Mumford is a book with a quietly authoritative speech and image in which one can hear the beating of that heart in the heart, that breathing of a parched country haunted by a long-ago sea. …Books that take you to the heart of the heart are rare and precious, as are books that tell their story so honestly and so beautifully.  Peter Bishop, Varuna Founding Director
