4.0 out of 5 stars the miracle of space and time June 1 2000
Format:Hardcover
"Australia -journey of a timeless land" is a great book about a surely great land. The texts by roff smith present all the territories of the continent, góing from the north to the west coast, the southern vineyards to the eastcoast. Smith writes about the historical development, the social and political status quo, every time in a interesting way, often using a personal point of view, areporters point of view. The aborigines-tragedy has room as has the cruels of Tasmanias prisons of the 18th Century Really marvellous and overwhelming are the photographs of national-geographic stuff-member sam abell. Great landscapes, the special light of morning or evening gives the land a structure. Abell is able to bring the feeling of space on a simple sheet. And he captures with his mostley wide-angle optics decessif moments, where time and space meet at an certain point. And I think, time and space, open space are specific for Australia, that i have not ever visited. Sam Abell is a great artist, more than a photojournalist. You should read his "stay this moment"-book also. This australia-book is worth every dolllar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful photography and engaging explanations March 3 2014
By Former Baker - Published on Amazon.com

I adore Australia and everything about it, so perhaps I am a bit biased when it comes to movies and texts about that exotic land, but I do think this book is a fantastic resource for those who love Australia.

Full of National Geographic photography that beautifully captures the magic, the terror, the beauty, the mystery, and the isolation that is found across Australia, this books gives the reader the perfect amount of information, both in text and photography, about each area of the continent.

Nothing is presented in too little, or too much, detail. It is just perfect. Absolutely perfect.

This book gave a good overview of the history and status of each Australian State. The pictures were excellent and complimented the text. A good read for someone who would like to learn more about the country.
