About this book

Based on 19th- and 20th-century records, this is the story of the world's largest marsupial predator, deliberately hunted to extinction through fear, ignorance and greed. Beautifully produced, this is an excellent account of an introguing creature which has become a symbol of the conservation movement worldwide.
