What name could be a more apt description of Australia than The Land of Parrots, a name inspired by late sixteenth-century maps showing a southern region labelled Psittacorum regio? This beautiful book takes a close look at parrots in Australia, from the first published illustration of an Australian parrota Rainbow Lorikeet, collected live on Cooks 1770 voyage, to William T. Coopers twentieth-century watercolour of the elusive Night Parrot.
