As one of Australia’s finest wildlife artists, the late great Peter Slater needs no introduction to natural history enthusiasts. He has been publishing books celebrating the country’s wildlife for many decades, not least the renowned Slater Field Guide to Australian Birds.
For Australian Nature from the Heart Peter teamed up with the equally talented Sally Elmer to produce a remarkable collection of images covering all aspects of Australian natural history. Subjects include various species of birds, mammals, insects, reptiles and much more, with these creatures often portrayed with backdrops of stunning Australian landscapes, from desert and bush to rainforest and wetlands. The accompanying text gives fascinating background information and insight into species both common and rare, which the authors have encountered on their extensive travels around Australia.
