Fighting Spirit



The tragedy of lost lives, homes, livelihoods, land and wildlife, and the subsequent rallying of courageous communities across the country are captured in this unique photographic tribute to the fighting spirit of the people of Australia.

Including a foreword from Prime Minister Scott Morrison, an introduction by award-winning author Trent Dalton, community contributions and two poems selected through a national competition for school children, this book reflects the healing power of community, kindness and hope.

‘The book you hold in your hands is as much a meditation on the Black Summer fires as it is a permanent reminder of an inextinguishable fire that exists in the community-owned-and-operated spiritual heart of our nation’ Trent Dalton
