Great Australian Bushfire Stories and Great Australian Flood Stories help people prepare for bushfires and floods through the power of oral history and story-telling. Each chapter tells a personal story of how people dealt with the greatest threats of their lives. Learn that understanding their history and being aware of their local environment and climate were key to their survival.
It was these stories and conversations which enabled Ian to understand how people responded to hazards; what they did, why they did it; and what they needed.
