In a Sunburned Country
by Bill Bryson

7pm
Bill Bryson has traveled across the world and all the way down under to Australia,    
a shockingly under-discovered country with the friendliest inhabitants, the hottest
driest weather, and the most peculiar and lethal wildlife found on the planet.
In a Sunburned Country is his report on what he found there
--a deliciously funny, fact-filled, and adventurous performance by a writer
who combines humor, wonder, and unflagging curiosity.
Copies of the book are available at the library.
