Charles Massy gained a Bachelor of Science at ANU in 1976 before going farming for 35 years and developing the prominent Merino sheep stud ‘Severn Park’. Concern at ongoing land degradation and humanity’s sustainability challenge led him to return to ANU in 2009 to undertake a PhD in Human Ecology. Charles has authored several books on the Australian sheep industry, including Breaking the Sheep’s Back (UQP, 2011). Call of the Reed Warbler is Charles’s fourth book and won Scholarly Non-Fiction Book of the Year in the Educational Publishing Awards.
