“The Quiet Land is the island of Tasmania.  Not the Tasmania which is becoming more like every other settled area of the western world, but the Tasmania that is still surprising, often beautiful, and sometimes unique.  Through the perceptions of three Tasmanians, this book presents a new appreciation of Australia’s smallest state.
The photographs by Peter Dombrovskis were taken over a period of five years and reflect a feeling for natural beauty and a personal empathy and concern for Tasmania’s remaining wildlands.
Ellen Miller’s sensitive prose-poems weave between the photographs, distilling a new philosophy of respect for the land.  She suggests, in essence, that a land should be loved for its own sake rather than for what we might take from it.”
