Looking out from Sydney, across the sprawl of suburbia, the Blue Mountains rise in a blue-green haze from the Cumberland Plain. These mountains are home to many fascinating animals. In this book is presented a description of this diverse fauna.
The authors list all mammals, birds, reptiles and frogs reliably reported from the region over the last 200 years and provide details of their local distribution and habitat, their relative abundance (on a scale of common, moderately common, uncommon or rare) and something of their habits and life histories. The order of the species follows the standard reference books for each group.
As a guide to identification, Judy and Peter Smith give a brief description of each species of mammal, reptile and frog, emphasising the diagnostic features and indicating the average adult size.
