Tim Low's award-winning book about the way we interact with nature in our human spaces continues to challenge our perceptions of the environment and our interaction with it.
Winner of the NIB Waverley Award for Literature.
Forget about wilderness, Tim Low says, nature lives in our cities and gardens, exploiting everything we do. Endangered species now live in industrial zones and cities. In our forests, native creatures, including lyrebirds and rainforest trees, are now a force to reckon with. Sheep are being kept in some national parks to save rare birds and plants.
We need to know why.
The New Nature shows that:
- wilderness is a myth
- wildlife welcomes our sewage
- rare animals need weeds
- wildlife-friendly gardening is not so friendly
