Peter Garrett’s life so far has been deeply felt and fully and passionately lived. A man of boundless energy, compassion, fierce intelligence and a questing and creative spirit, he has already achieved enough to fill several lives. From his idyllic childhood growing up in the northern suburbs of Sydney, to the devastating early loss of his parents; from arriving at ANU still reeling from the 1960s culture shock to fronting iconic Australian band Midnight Oil; from his time as a galvanising activist for the environment to being the only unaligned Cabinet Minister in two Labor governments, Garrett has an extraordinary story to tell. He writes movingly about his lifelong mission to protect the environment and champion Indigenous communities and issues, about his love for his family and his passion for our country: what it means to him and what it can become. Provocative, entertaining, impassioned and inspiring, this memoir goes to the heart and soul of a remarkable Australian and raises questions crucial for us all.
