Our Sunburnt Country Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Anika Molesworth fell in love with her family's farm, a sheep station near Broken Hill, at an early age. She formed a bond with the land as though it were a member of her family. When the Millennium Drought hit, though, bringing with it extreme heat and dust storms, the future she'd always imagined for herself began to seem impossible.
As she began to learn more about the causes of - and the solutions to - the extreme weather that was killing her land and her livelihood, Anika became fired up and determined to speak out. Talking to farmers and food producers all around the world, she began to realise that there was a way forward that could be both practical and sustainable - if only we can build up the courage to take it.
Beautifully written and full of hope, Our Sunburnt Country shows that there is a way to protect our land, our food and our future, and it is within our grasp.

Her passion and emotions for climate change shine through as she applies the scientific facts to her authentic contexts. She tells the sorrowful story of our loss of species and reduction of biodiversity, weaving in her lived experiences with those of others who toil our lands to bring us food.
Anika brings her heart and soul to the table. She describes climate and food-system problems as a collective cultural challenge that only a collaborative and inclusive dialogue can solve. She reminds us that we are all leaders and we mustn’t wait to be told what to do. She encourages us to grasp opportunities and become the leaders we have been waiting for.
She ends the book with a range of practical actions we can carry out both in the short and longer term and ends with a call to arms ‘no one can do everything but everyone can do something’. It would be impossible not to be inspired by this wonderful book.

Beautifully written, Anika share her own personal experiences and invite the reader to get familiar with an area most of us have disconnected from: where does our food comes from?
I really enjoyed the tone of outrage against the errors we have made, however, the author remains optimistic about our capacity to bring positive change.
How can you maintain a positive attitude without shying away from reality? Anika does a wonderful work showing how
