SYNOPSIS: Alexander Hugh Chisholm (1890-1977) was a noted Australian journalist, newspaper editor, author and amateur ornithologist. He was a prolific writer, particularly on his favourite topic - birds. He was the recipient of Australia's first Natural History medallion in 1940. This autobiography of a life in a bygone era and a childhood in country Victoria is fascinating. It was his last book. Books such as these should never be out of print but sadly are and their authors forgotten. Quantity Available: 1.
