Australia's evocative Mallee region is rich with histories, impressions and geographical complexities. It Is also a microcosm of a world in turmoil.Ground Truthing allows the Mallee to speak: to show its nurturing and renewable self. In searching for the principles that bring the Mallee into being, Carter digs, plots and weaves a creative passage. A Wotjobaluk man, Jowley', the poet John Shaw Neilson and pastoralist William Stanbridge are among characters that give access to the place. Their voices mingle with those of vanished peoples and an ecological future crying out for renegotiation. Through this spatial history of the Mallee, we see that there are regions within regions and that this is the poetic key to the production and sustenance of all places.
