This book reveals the plateau through its inhabitants: the Gundungurra people who were there first and still remain- the Maxwell family, who tried, but failed, to tame the land- the affable, impoverished, often drunken ranchers and firefighters- and the author himself, a poet trying to insinuate his citified self into a rugged landscape defined by drought, fire, and scarcity.

Like the works of Peter Mathiessen, Barry Lopez, and William Least Heat-Moon, The Blue Plateau is a deep examination of place that transcends genre, incorporating poetry, people’s history, ecology, mythology, and memoir to reveal how humanity and nature intertwine to create a home. Elegiac and intimately composed, this vivid portrait of a rugged wilds expands readers’ sense of the place they call home.
