PertheBook - 2013 | International edition.
Dispelling some of the more unflattering stereotypes of Perth, acclaimed author and Perth native David Whish-Wilson describes how the city strikes a perfect harmony with its own eccentricities and contradictions, presenting a place of surprising beautyof brilliant light and sand-swept peacewhere deeper historical currents nevertheless lurk beneath the surface. This examination looks beyond the shiny glass facades and boosterish talk of mining booms to get at the richness of the natural world and the trailblazers, rebels, ordinary people, and even the occasional ghost that bring Australia's remotest city to life. This beautiful portrait of Perth will move outsiders to revisit their preconceptions about the city and inspire residents to renew their connection to it.
