The Spirit of Rural Australia focuses on the nature of rural landscapes and communities. The photography has a nostalgic theme that reflects on past farming practices, institutions and key occupations fundamental to rural Australia, while at the same time the text considers the changes which are occurring throughout rural communities.
The book is organised into the sections of Land, Work, House, Town and Communication with Images of country people, elements of story, anecdote, memoir and biography intertwine to produce this visual celebration.
