Quicksilver begins on a quiet day in contemplation of a lizard deep in the heart of the outback but quickly moves to the Russia of Tolstoy and Gorky, and on to other lands and times, bringing intoplay universal questions about the essential nature of the human condition.Rothwell's chief subject is always the inland- the mystic Kurangara cult that flourished in theKimberley; the story of the Western Desert artists, their works and their eventual fate; the tracksacross the wilderness of Colonel Warburton and George Grey; the bush dreams and intuitions ofD. H. Lawrence and the landscape word-portraits by the great biographer of nature Eric Rolls.In Quicksilver Rothwell masterfully takes us in search of the sacred through place and time, inan enchanting reverie of calm wondering.
