Description

Sharyn Munro, author of the acclaimed The Woman on the Mountain, lives alone on her mountaintop refuge, surrounded by nothing but the Australian bush. As the only human resident, she has developed a keen interest in the lives and loves of her animal neighbours and it is their stories that she shares with us now. From quolls to kookaburras, snakes to kangaroos, frogs to koalas, Sharyn has encountered them all and has been both amused and infuriated by their behaviour. After all, how would you feel if your neighbours ate your roses, solicited for sex on your front lawn or took over your shed? So come and talk a walk in Sharyn's gumboots, and discover the humorous, intriguing and sometimes poignant world of life on the wild side.

The author

Sharyn Munro is a freelance writer, award-winning short-story writer, and author of the highly successful The Woman on the Mountain. She lives a self-sufficient lifestyle in a mudbrick cabin on her remote mountain wildlife refuge. Alone but for her often intrusive wildlife neighbours, she is regenerating her property's vegetation, at a pace dictated by ageing knees. She is also becoming a late-blooming environmental activist, at a pace dictated by concern for her grandchildren's futures.
