Book Awards

  • Winner of Whitley Awards: Best Natural History Book 2005.

Book Description

Now available in new B-format edition, with an irresistible new cover, Woodford explores the wombat's bizarre evolutionary history and perilous future. In 1960, when he was a fifteen-year-old schoolboy at Timbertop, Peter Nicholson began to investigate the secret world of wombats by crawling down their burrows and making friends with them. In this enthralling book James Woodford, bestselling author of The Wollemi Pine, tells the extraordinary story of Nicholson's research and then sets off himself in pursuit of the elusive wombat. He reveals the unusual history of its discovery, and tracks down scientists, rangers, farmers and wildlife carers around the continent who are struggling to understand and save these ancient and enigmatic creatures. In The Secret Life of Wombats James Woodford explores the mysteries of one of the world's most intriguing marsupials and traces its evolution on the great island continent. This is popular science at its best- an irresistible subject in the hands of an irrepressible author.

Books By Author James Woodford

Great White by James Woodford Great White, Paperback (December 2014)

With the body of a torpedo, the jaws of a bear trap, the power of a truck and a brain the size of a thumb, this is the story of the ocean's most perfect predator.

Great Barrier Reef by James Woodford Great Barrier Reef, Paperback (August 2011)

The real Great Barrier Reef is not just a single clown fish or a colony of branching stag horn coral. It is not simply the crystal clear water, cocktails and beautiful bodies of the tourist ads.

Real Dirt by James Woodford Real Dirt, Paperback (September 2008)

The story of James Woodford's story, the story of how he came to find a piece of land to connect to, to live on and to regenerate, not just the land, but his life, too. And a story of how a house and a way of life could be built to be environmentally sustainable, comfortable, enriching, exciting - and real.

Whitecap by James Woodford Whitecap, Paperback (July 2007)

Each winter the sleepy fishing town of Bimbulla, is visited by the magnificent wandering albatross. Dig is a loner, a scientist who lives to tag hundreds of these stately creatures on their annual appearance. This year, though, a leg band on a bird that was tagged in the 1960s hints at sinister events in the past.
