Heartsick for Country


FISH - Foundation for Indigenous Sustainable Health

The stories in this anthology speak of the love between First Nations peoples and their countries. They are personal accounts that share knowledge, insight and emotion, each speaking of a deep connection to country and of feeling heartsick because of the harm that is being inflicted on country even today, through the logging of old growth forests, converting millions of acres of land to salt fields, destruction of ancient rock art and significant sacred sites, and a record of species extinction that is the worst in the world.
