"Yuin Country, the Aboriginal land where this story was written, stretches along the south coast of New South Wales in Australia to the border with Victoria. It’s a landscape known for its untouched coastline, home to beaches that are thought to have some of the whitest sand on Earth. It is also country that this time last year was devastated by bushfires, which burned 5.4m hectares of land and destroyed 2,439 homes in the state. You likely saw it in the news; seaside villages turned red, then black, overnight."
