'It felt appropriate that I received the review copy of The Colonial Kangaroo Hunt in the mail the day following the 250th anniversary of Captain Cook’s first Australian landing; the quote on the book’s back cover is from Cook’s diary, accompanied by a ghostly image of a kangaroo taken from the front cover painting, and reads:

'One of the Men saw an Animal something less than a greyhound; it was of Mouse Colour, very slender made, and swift of Foot.' (Introduction)
