An enlightening history of how Europeans, through the introduction of a single species, changed Australia forever. Survivor of drought, fire, flood, diseases, predators, and poisons—the humble rabbit might be small and attractive but it has irrevocably transformed Australia's environment and influenced the country's social, political, and cultural life.

Book Description Text Publishing Co, Australia, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Revised, Updated ed.. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. When the First Fleet arrived at Sydney Cove in 1788, its cargo included a small number of rabbits. A hundred years later rabbits had colonised vast areas of the continent, bringing irreversible change to the country s ecology. Tooth and Nail is a beautifully written and wonderfully entertaining history about human reactions to the rabbit. A survivor of drought, fire, flood, diseases, predators and poisons, this small and rather attractive creature has irrevocably transformed our environment and influenced social, political and cultural life in this country. Coman describes everything from nineteenth-century poisoning techniques to destroying rabbit warrens with explosives, from the many weird theories circulating as to how to destroy the rabbit to Louis Pasteur s attempts to infect Australian rabbits with chicken cholera. He tells the story of a Geelong grazier who was one of the first to bring rabbits to Australia. And the book charts the extraordinary postwar story of the battle against the rabbit, including the unprecedented impact of myxomatosis and rabbit haemorrhagic disease. Tooth and Nail is an indispensable history of how Europeans, through the introduction of a single species, changed Australia forever. Seller Inventory # BTE9781921656385
