An Inch of Rain: A Water History of Northern Victoria by Robyn Ballinger

Northern Victoria is a place of fluctuating rainfall. Big sky country, so flat and unobstructed are its parts that you can see the curvature of the earth. With rain the place billows green like a moving sea. Under a summer sun, the earth bakes and warps, fashioning shimmering mirages that hold the seductive promise of water. Seasonal changes are writ large and waves of people have adapted accordingly.

But in the face of a changing climate, how sustainable are these adaptations?

An Inch of Rain tells the water history of a particular place and its people. But the story resonates beyond its own borders.

As Australians, how well do we know ourselves as part of our country, and how prepared are we for the future?
