The Confessions of a Beachcomber
Banfield, E. J. - New Introduction by Michael
Book Number: 60661
ISBN: 0702222852
University of Queensland Press, 1994. First Facsimile Edition 8vo. Softcover. 336pp. Very good, cover corner creased. Includes all 53 original illustrations. Join Banfield as he describes his escape from hectic civilization to the simpler pleasures of a tropical paradise. A physical wreck, Banfield literally crawled onto the beach in Brammo Bay from the ship's launch that brought him to the island where he would spend the remainder of his life and would find renewed health and interest in life. A disciple of Thoreau, Banfield became a champion of species preservation, and using his pen as his sword, he eventually persuaded the Australian government to set aside Dunk Island as a protected area for wild birds of all species. During his life on the island, Banfield became a keen observer of the nature around him, and while he argues his amateur approach to the study of nature, his catalog of the island's life provides an intriguing and comprehensive look at what it means to live free on a tropical island. For modern readers, Banfield's observations remind us of an intriguing, complex, interesting, and intensely enjoyable world beyond the television screen and computer monitor.
