Editorial Review

One of Australia's greatest environmental catastrophes is the unstoppable march of the cane toad across the Australian continent. Despised by many, venerated by some, the toad has occupied a nation's consciousness achieving both cult and criminal status. Despite its international origin the cane toad has become uniquely Australian -- yet, for a world wrestling with the idea that we have irretrievably altered our own ecosystem, its story holds universal relevance. Featuring a host of engaging characters as well as thousands of toads, "Cane Toads: The Conquest" is a humorous yet thought-provoking journey into the issue of invasive species.
