This book may be by a distinguished scientist but he is not a climate scientist. It is a book of denial.
Before you read it I would suggest reading this review linked below by a climate scientist who knew the author. He explains the book better than me.

This historically significant but short book is a compilation of interviews by a researcher with a humble aboriginal man who grew up and spent most of his life 1900-1972 on government reserves in and around North Western NSW. It recounts the atrocious and at times criminal mistreatment and deliberate neglect of aboriginal children and adults and the generally superior and careless attitude of white society. Despite this Jimmie was able to rise above his circumstances.

sadly Grace does not really have a lot to say. She falls back to a limited life experience & it is not that interesting.
Possibly the second volume might be more interesting providing that she does not write it before at least another thirty years.
