Knut Dahl led expeditions into the NT and Kimberley in 1894-96. In Savage Australia was first published in English in 1926 but is not well known despite his interesting biological work and pertinent comments on the social habits of all races.
Dahl was a biologist with a wide knowledge and interest. Ian Abbot has written the Foreword and an appendix on the fauna described by Dahl. This is the latest volume in the Western Australian Explorers’ Diaries Project and an essential reference for anyone interested in northern Australia.
