Description
On a property in western New South Wales a man named Holland lives with his daughter, Ellen. Over the years, as she grows into a beautiful young woman, he plants hundreds of different eucalyptus trees on his land, filling in the landscape, making a virtual outdoor museum of trees. When Ellen is nineteen, he announces his decision: she may marry only the man who can correctly name the species of each and every gum tree on his property.Suitors emerge from all corners, including the straight-backed Mr. Cave, a world expert on these famous Australian trees. And then one day, walking down by the river where silver light slants into the motionless trunks, Ellen chances on a strange young man resting under the Coolibah tree. In the days that follow, he tells her dozens of stories - set in cities, deserts, and faraway countries.Eucalyptus is at once a modern fairy tale and a touching love story, played out against the spearing light and broken shadows of Australia - its land, its history, its people.
