Summary

"The work is in essence two books. The first ... considers the bunyip in its various disguises and makes some guesses about its various identities. The second ... is all the original material I and many helpers have been able to trace on the bunyip to date, in chronological order as far as possible, in the original author's own words. That record is the work of a very large number of people, some known, some not, in a line stretching back to when people first came to Australia, and perhaps further back than that"- - Preface.
