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.
