    This attractive volume records the lost and vanishing animals that once thrived on our continent. Naturalist John Gould’s review of Australian mammals, published between 1845 and 1863, provided a window into the ‘comparatively undisturbed’ environment of the time and foretold the ‘inevitable demise’ of certain species due to European short-sightedness. Here, Ford draws on Gould’s material to profile species that are now endangered or extinct and adds the stories of those species since 1863. He presents fascinating and visually engaging portraits of a variety of mammals, including the thylacine, quolls, the red-tailed phascogale, potoroos and native mice. A haunting reminder of the impact of European settlement and the things we have lost.
