On January 3rd, 2020, a wall of fire sweeps over the Prideauxs’ home, their livelihood. It is one of more than 3,000 homes leveled by the catastrophic “Black Summer” wildfires in Australia.

Two and a half years later, Dr. Margi Prideaux publishes “FIRE: A Message from the Edge of Climate Catastrophe,” a captivating book, a first-hand account of how a small community – experienced in fighting bushfires – was confronted with a natural disaster whose magnitude exceeded anything previously seen or imagined.

“FIRE is a revelation; an ambitious, poetic, sweeping account of the Black Summer fires of 2019/2020…

…FIRE is a sterling primer for survival in the age of climate chaos which deserves very wide readership. This is a must-read book for the climate crisis era we are now living in.”, writes Peter Garrett, noted environmentalist, former Australian Federal Minister, and Midnight Oil frontman, in his foreword to FIRE.

Release date: October 20th, 2022.
