Publishers Description: A fascinating look at this most famous Australian of marsupials. The story of the Tasmanian Devil is a remarkable one - surprising, controversial, funny and tragic. Nor has it been told before. Few mammals have been so negatively named, but this book casts the Tasmanian Devil in a strikingly new light. Far from being a scavenging, ferocious oddity, it is a treasured and valuable wildlife species, and one that faces the threat of extinction. This is the first book published on the animal that has the distinction of being the worlds largest marsupial carnivore, and it is packed with information that has either never been published or has only been found in scientific publications. About the Authors David Owen is the author of 12 books including Thylacine: the Tragic Tale of the Tasmanian Tiger. He is the Official Secretary to the Governor of Tasmania. David Pemberton is the Program Manager, Save the Tasmanian Devil Program, in Tasmanias Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Wildlife and Environment. Industry Reviews "A superbly readable account of this bizarre marsupial . . . the animal beneath the misnomer." --New York Sun"Written in the conversational yet informative tone of the good naturalist-lecturer . . . this will be the go-to book on Tasmanian devils for the foreseeable future." --Booklist
