The lives and loves of my animal neighbours
By the acclaimed author of The Woman on the Mountain and Rich Land, Wasteland, this collection of true tales about Sharyn Munro's wild neighbours will delight her scores of fans as well as earn her many new ones. For 30 years Sharyn has shared her mountain forest wildlife refuge with the native animals, from quolls to kookaburras, snakes to kangaroos, frogs to koalas. As her sole companions for the past six years, they have provided a wealth of material that Sharyn has captured here in both words and drawings. From short cherished glimpses to long endured invasions, Sharyn shares her experiences - intimate, humorous and incidentally informative - as well as her hopes and fears for these unique creatures' futures. So come and take a walk in Sharyn's gumboots and experience life on the wild side!
Sharyn Munro writes to make sense of the world. From award-winning short stories to non-fiction, her work explores her fellow creatures, human and non-human, their connection to each other and to place. She lives alone in a solar-powered mud-brick cabin on her mountain wildlife refuge in the New South Wales' Upper Hunter - except when she's out campaigning to save the planet for her grandchildren.
