Summary

Rod Giblett came to live by Forrestdale Lake in southwestern Australia in 1986. Based in part on a nature journal he kept for several years, Black Swan Laketraces the life of the plants and animals of the surrounding area through the seasons. Presenting a wetlands calendar that charts the yearly cycle of the rising, falling, and drying waters of this internationally significant wetland, this book is a modern-day Walden. The first book to provide a cultural and natural history of this place-taking into account the indigenous people's concept of the seasons (six instead of four)- Black Swan Lakewill be enjoyed by conservationists, as well as others seeking connection with place, plants, and animals in their own bioregion.
