Alice Springs

Front Cover
NewSouth Publishing, 2012 - Travel - 325 pages

A personal, evocative, and unflinching account, this book reveals the texture of everyday life in Alice Springs, Australia, through the passage of the local seasons. Alice Springs, the most talked about yet least familiar place in Australia, is isolated and has extreme seasonal weather: searingly hot and bitterly cold. It is the heart of black Australia and the headquarters of the controversial Northern Territory Intervention. Questioning why frontier conflicts still hold sway in a place possessing a striking landscape and modern facilities, it will appeal to locals and visitors alike.
