The 2nd edition of “Back Country Rivers” by David Howard contains extra poems and further information about stories connected to earlier poems. He has re-titled the book by adding the sub-title, “Wider and Deeper”
The book also contains a Foreword by Angus Emmott OAM, who is well-known for his interest in and knowledge about the rivers in the beautiful Channel Country of north-western Queensland. Angus’s efforts as an activist have helped to bring the ecological importance of this region to the attention of governments, policy-makers and the general public. Here is an excerpt from the Foreword:
This book David has written focuses on the rivers in this outback region and the importance of conserving them. His writing reflects a life lived travelling the lesser-known areas of inland Australia. In this book, he continues his wonderful gift of telling stories, whilst honouring the outback landscape. I highly recommend this book for those who are wishing to get a deeper understanding of this amazing part of our planet.
David’s new poems (and associated stories) include one about the Johnstone River in far north Queensland, a creative use for dud opal mine shafts, and an unmentionable disease he calls the “Queensland Disease”.
