Lure of the Thylacine - True Stories and Legendary Tales of the Tasmanian Tiger
Speculation by an ever-growing band of Tasmanian tiger devotees that the thylacine still exists has not wavered, despite the dogmatic stance by the scientific fraternity that the animal is extinct. This collection of actual accounts and anecdotal yarns originated from discussions the author had with an old Tasmanian tiger trapper, Reg Trigg, who in the early days of the twentieth century established a mutual friendship with Lucy, a tiger he rescued from a trap. Covering a century and a half during which this animal's status has changed from being a despised sheep killer to a magnificent survivor, these enthralling stories are for both the curious and the enthusiast. A collection of wonderful stories, yarns and tales by Australia's pre-eminent tiger enthusiast. 'Col Bailey has written a fascinating collection of folklore stories about the Tasmanian tiger. For those who like a good, natural-history mystery and a bit of entertaining Aussie folklore, the book is no waste of time.' - Sunday Mail on Col's first book A follow up to Col Bailey's best-selling memoirShadow of the Thylacine. Includes rare photographs and never-before-shared information.
