Beschreibung:

The Black Saturday bushfires of 7 February 2009 were the most catastrophic in Australia's history. One hundred and seventy three people lost their lives and over two thousand homes were destroyed. Award winning historian and writer Robert Kenny had a sound fire plan and he was prepared. But the reality of the fire was more ferocious and more unpredictable than he could have imagined. By the end of the day, his house and the life contained within were gone. Gardens of Fire extends his experience of being engulfed by flames to an investigation of the human relationship with fire. This extraordinary and compelling history explores European and Aboriginal mythologies of fire along with the pragmatics of the fire in the hearth. This is at once an intimate memoir and a meditative analysis of the reality that, as humans, we are children of fire.
