Visions of a Rainforest A Year in Australia's Tropical Rainforest. Text by Stanley Breeden, illustrations by William T. Cooper, foreword by Sir David Attenborough.
Two days after Stanley Breeden moved into the house he built in the middle of far north Queensland's tropical rainforest, he began a diary.
Visions of a Rainforest is a year-long journey of discovery by one of Australian's most respected natural historians. Deep in the forest, surrounded by age-old trees, Stanley Breeden walks out of his house to see butterflies and brilliantly coloured beetles flying along the forest edge, orchids smothering tree branches, exotic possums peering at him from vines, huge pythons slithering through the undergrowth, golden bowerbirds building their elaborate and richly decorated bowers, cassowaries looking into his windows, and frogs singing on wet nights
With illustrations by William T. Cooper, one of the world's most acclaimed natural history artists and Stanley Breeden's neighbor, Visions of a Rainforest is a personal and evocative account of life in one of the richest, most complex habitats on Earth.
