“these enchanting nature stories have been selected and adapted from a volume entitled, “Friends and Foes in the Australian Bush,” a limited edition of which, published some years ago, sold out very shortly after publication.
The issue of the present volume, containing six of the original stories, has been undertaken in the belief that the fascination of the subjects, combined with the Author’s graphic style and delightful humour are such as must make an irresistible appeal to Australian Nature-lovers of all ages.”
