Idling in Green Places: A Life of Alec Chisholm

Russell McGregor

Alec Chisholm inspired Australians to see nature anew. His Mateship with Birds, published in 1922, is a classic of nature writing, and until his death in 1977 he urged his compatriots to cherish the natural world as their national heritage. Chisholm was a pioneer conservationist, a leading ornithologist, and much else besides. He earned renown - and some controversy - as a journalist, biographer, historian and encyclopaedia editor.

Idling in Green Places is the first full biography of this intriguing and influential Australian.
