More Australian than the kangaroo, more compelling than the platypus and as much a part of our cultural myth as Ned Kelly, the Tasmanian Tiger looms large in the national psyche. Does it still exist or is it forever lost to us' Three Americans are determined to find the truth and undertake a madcap adventure around the Apple Isle. The result is Carnivorous Nights, a bewitching account of this land's beauty, its unique fauna, and a fresh perspective on what Tasmanians, and mainlanders, hold dear.
This is an enjoyable, sometimes funny and broadly entertaining book.
