Stepping off with Tom Wilson at Osborne LibraryTom Wilson

As I grew up, it became apparent to me that I didn't really understand the natural environment of the place where I was born.

Tom Wilson has spent his life writing about the human relationship with our home: the natural world. Stepping Off is the story of the south-western corner of Western Australia. For anyone who has ever questioned their sense of belonging, who has ever dreamed of stepping off the grid to reconnect with nature it is an invitation to reconnect with the land.

Thomas Wilson has a PhD in Literature and the Environment, and is an Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Western Australia. He has created communication strategies for the World Wildlife Fund Australia, has developed curriculums for Western Australian high schools and was a regular host of Understorey on RTR between 2009 and 2011.
