Bush Capital Year, A
Fraser, Ian & Marsack, Peter
A long awaited new book by our much loved local professional naturalist Ian Fraser.
Illustrated beautifully by Peter Marsack who is well known for his natural history illustrations.
Very informative, and captivating in style, the book is written as if Ian was with us on a walk, explaining the things we see as we go. From the promiscuous female Superb Fairy-Wren in the pre-dawn faint wash of light in the ANBG in summer, to his dilemma over killing silverfish in winter. We are taken through the four seasons and a variety of locations in and around Canberra where we meet different natives - both animal and vegetable - and enjoy an interaction with them - from our favourite reading chair. Hopefully to encourage us to get up and go out and physically enjoy, and help to conserve, these wonderful experiences for the future.
