Summary
"This, the first book on the Tasmanian devil, overturns myth and prejudice and takes the reader on an amazing journey into the world of this complex, robust little marsupial about which there is much to discover in these pages."--BOOK JACKET
Summary
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
