Gum - The Story of Eucalyptus and Their Champions, Ashley Hay
2 Ashley Hay Gum - The Story of Eucalyptus and Their Champions
Duffy & Snellgrove 230938 Australia 2002 1876631260 / 9781876631260 Softcover Good Condition No matter where you look in Australia you're more than likely to see a eucalyptus tree. Scrawny or majestic, smooth as pearl or rough as a pub brawl, they have defined a continent for thousands of years, and still shape our imagination. Indigenous Australians have long woven myths about the abilities of the eucalyptus. Since Australia was colonised, botanists have battled for more than two hundred years in a race to count, classify and own the species. This is the story of that battle and of other eucalyptographers - explorers, poets, painters, foresters, conservationists, scientists (and engine drivers) - who have been obsessed by them, championing their powers. Gum trees have promised to cure malaria, solve the drainage problems that had defeated the Roman emperors, forest the Sahara and divine gold. Gum is about a magical, mythical, medicinal tree. More than that, it's the story of new worlds, strange people and big ideas. Light foxing to endpapers. 275 pages. Light tanning to pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

The Living Planet, David Attenborough
7 David Attenborough The Living Planet
Book Club Assoc 230272 London 1985 Hardcover Very Good Condition Good Nowhere on our planet is devoid of life. Plants, animals and man thrive or survive within the extremes of climate and almost infinite variety of domicile which it offers. Single species and often whole communities, adapt to make the most of ice-cap and tundra, forest and plain, desert, ocean and volcano. The adaptations are sometimes extraorfinary: fish which walk or lay eggs on leaves in mid air; snakes that fly; flightless birds that graze like deer; and bears which grow hair on the soles of their feet. In The Living Planet, based on his BBC television series, David Attenbourough's searching eye, unfailing curiousty and infectious enthusiasm, explain and illuminate the intricate lives of these colonies - from the lonely heights of the Himalayas to the wild creatures which have established themselves in the most recent of environments, the city. By the end of this biook it is difficult to say which is the more astonishing - the ingenuity with which individual species contrive a living of the complexity of their interdependence on each other and the habitations provided by our plant. As in the author's previous book, Life on Earth, which unfolded the story of evolution, a profusion of superb photographs illustrates the principal facets of the earth's surface and their inhabitants. Dust jacket has a small closed tear to bottom of front cover. 320 pages. Fully Illustrated. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

Life on earth traced the development of animal life from its beginnings, and The living planet concentrated on how the environment shapes the bodies of animals. Now Attenborough examines how animals use those bodies how they behave and why. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or. 320 pages. Dust Jacket price-clipped.

At The End Of The Rainbow - Gold, Land and People in the Brazilian Amazon, Gordon MacMillan
13 Gordon MacMillan At The End Of The Rainbow - Gold, Land and People in the Brazilian Amazon
Columbia University Press 230652 New York 1995 0231103557 / 9780231103558 Softcover Very Good Condition Throughout the 1980s, a combination of widespread poverty and favourable gold prices encouraged hoards of wildcat miners to penetrate some of the Amazon's rainforest headwaters in search of new deposits. Now, hundreds of makeshift camps threaten the future of both the rainforest and the indigenous people who inhabit it. This book explains how gold fever came to grip the Amazon and considers the changes it has brought to the region. It contains a vivid account of the violent clash between forty thousand miners and the Yanamami Indians in the state of Roraima, as well as thoroughly researched arguments that explore the perspectives of the farmers, ranchers, natives, and others involved in this historic moment. 199 pages.
