Summary
"Wilderness is fast disappearing or has disappeared altogether as the high tide of the human-induced effect on the environment washes over the continent, reaching into even the most isolated gorges and distant deserts. But while there are many wild creatures and plants that sadly are adversely affected, there are myriads of others that exist and flourish despite the despoliation: it is these that Sally Elmer, Peter and Raoul Slater regard as epitomising their concept of wildness: creatures that persist in spite of cats, foxes, hoofed animals, toads, weeds, inappropriate burning and deforestation. Their favoured subjects are birds, wasps, dragonflies and butterflies, but anything native that moves or grows is likely to attract their attention. These are their visions of wildness."--Back cover
