A Headful of Details. "Black Kettle and Full Moon: Daily Life in a Vanished Australia" by Geoffrey Blainey [review]
Geoffrey Blainey is seventy-three years old and has published thirty-two books. Since his last book was a history of the world, one might have assumed that he had reached the end of his career. But he is not done yet. He moves, as he has always done, from grand speculation to what might be thought trifles — in this case, the details of everyday life in Australia from the 1850s to 1914.
