Densey Clyne is one of Australia’s best known naturalist writer, photographer and TV presenter, a keen and enthusiastic observer who presents wildlife to the public with humour, sympathy and scientific accuracy.
'Wildlife Of Australia' is Densey’s personal response to the natural world. It’s not a field guide or academic natural history, but 30 fascinating tales of various animals and environments that are characters in the story of Australian natural history.
In this book you will find peaceful kangaroos and wallabies they can fly like the wind in great bounds, carnivorous caterpillar that feasts on the larvae of green ants and the butterfly that has followed the trail of human colonisation, island hopping across the Pacific to settle successfully in Australia.
All of these stories, accompanied by beautiful colour photographs, are told with Densey’s characteristic personal insights and set in a fascinating historical context.
