Outback The Amazing Animals of Australia

Author: Dan Kainen, Ella Morton Format: Hardback Release Date: 11/09/2019

Take an eye-opening adventure to Australia through the magic of the Photicular series, which with its patented technology is not only a delight to behold but to sell, too, with over 2.6 million copies in print and sales in excess of 300,000 copies a year. In Outback discover the frilled-neck lizard racing along on its two hind feet like a half-terrifying, half-comical miniature dinosaur. A brightly colour galah scraping its beak along a tree limb. Plus exotic peacock spiders who seem to dance in the trees, a too-cute Wombat who lumbers through the grass, and of course a red kangaroo, who hops along, its back legs and massive tail working in unison. Flipping through the pages of Outback is like a trip of a lifetime to down under. The lively text filled with interesting, insider facts is from Atlas Obscura associate editor Ella Morton, New Zealand-born and Australia-raised.

Highlands - Scotland's Wild Heart

Highlands - Scotland's Wild Heart

Author: Stephen Moss, Laurie Campbell Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 05/09/2019

In the very north of Britain, far from the bustling cities and picturesque countryside to the south, lies Western Europe's most magnificent wilderness: the Scottish Highlands. This is a land shaped by the flow of ancient ice, where snow-capped mountains tower over ink-black lochs, Golden Eagles soar over heather-clad moors, and Red Deer stags engage in mortal combat for the right to win a mate. Along the coast, sea cliffs and offshore islands teem with millions of seabirds, while the seas themselves are home to Basking Sharks, Orcas and Bottlenose Dolphins. The Highlands may, at first sight, seem bleak and desolate, but they are also filled with hidden wonders, from the ancient Caledonian pine forests to the vast Flow Country, and from the sheer granite cliffs of Handa to the mysterious depths of Loch Ness. In this lavish book, Stephen Moss's thoughtful, authoritative text, accompanied throughout by spectacular photography from Laurie Campbell, follows a year in the lives of a stellar cast of wild animals as they live, feed, breed and die in this beautiful, yet unforgiving landscape - a land where only the toughest survive.
