    DescriptionMost Australians live in cities, clinging to the coast and looking outwards towards the ocean. Yet almost all feel closely connected to the country, even if they hardly ever visit it. Many dream of moving to rural areas - there's a harshness to much of the Australian landscape and yet they still feel a sense of romance about it. For Rural Australian Homes, Leta Keens travelled around Australia to find the 18 homes featured in the book - a wide-ranging and appealing selection that includes a sheep station that has been in the same family for 100 years, a converted general store, an adapted shed, and award-winning architect-designed contemporary houses. Covering every state and the Northern Territory, Rural Australian Homes gives a compelling insight into contemporary life in rural Australia, and offers a glimpse into some of the history that has defined it. Key points: written by Leta Keens, one of Australia's most popular writers on architecture, design and the arts; features a wide-ranging selection of 18 houses across every state and the Northern Territory; includes beautiful photography by renowned garden photographer Simon Griffiths
