— Review of The Colonial Kangaroo Hunt Ken Gelder , Rachael Weaver , 2020 multi chapter work criticism

'Ken Gelder and Rachael Weaver’s book, The Colonial Kangaroo Hunt, provides an important stimulus for the study of kangaroos in the colonial setting of Australia, a topic that took hold of the British imagination during the years between 1770 and 1900. While the book focuses primarily on a historical review of kangaroo killing as a manifestation of frontier experiences, it also draws on a range of source material, including images (oil paintings, sketches, watercolours, and lithographs) and texts (letters, memoirs, popular journalism, poetry, novels, and fantasies), to examine the interconnections between hunting practices and colonial development in Australia.'  (Introduction)
