Since that first brave adventurer left the great Afro-Asian homeland to travel down the long chain of islands to Australasia, human beings have consumed the resources they would need for their own future. The Aborigines, Maoris and other Polynesian peoples were the world's original future eaters. They changed the flora and fauna in ways that now seem inconceivable. Europeans have made an even greater impact. Today future eating is a universal occupation. this ground-breaking ecological history of Australasia will enrich the understanding of anyone who wonders what the future holds for humanity.

"[Flannery] tells his beautiful story in plain language, science popularising at its Antipodean best." - Redmond O'Hanlon, Times Literary Supplement.

"A book that could save our Antipodean skins... and only just in time." - Bryce Courtenay.
