Bailey has spent the past 40 years researching and ‘hunting’ for these elusive and somewhat legendary animals. He, quite convincingly, argues that there might well still be a small population in existence, and provides the reader with a sense of his passion and a gripping account of his quest. – THE WILDERNESS SOCIETY

Book overview

Shadow of the Thylacine is the haunting story of Col Bailey’s relentless search for the Tasmanian tiger.

His extensive journey commenced unexpectedly in 1967 when he sighted a Tasmanian tiger along the shores of the Coorong in South Australia. Then, in 1993, a chance encounter with an elderly bushman unlocked a wealth of previously untold information that led Col into the vast and untrodden wilderness of Tasmania’s Weld Valley. Now the truth of this significant discovery can be revealed in this tell-all book about an animal the experts claim is long extinct and couldn’t possibly still exist.

This is a thrilling Australian story.
