Secret Life of Wombats
12.7cm x 19.7cm
With his usual brilliance, James Woodford, bestselling author of 'The Wollemi Pine', explores wombats' bizarre evolutionary history and perilous future. But this book also tells the extraordinary story of Peter Nicholson, a schoolboy from Timbertop who, in the 1960s, learned more about the secret lives of these animals than anyone before him.
This is popular science writing at its best: an irresistible subject in the hands of an irrepressible author.
