Margaret McJannett is an Australian naturalist and author. She was born in Canberra.She is best known for her books about the Brindabella Ranges near Canberra which she wrote with her former partner Ian Fraser.She wrote an article for the "Bogong" magazine,Vol 12 No2, published by CASEREC, Canberra & South-East Region Environment Center, where she describes the idea, 'Let's write a book about the Brindabellas' my mate said!.. She was "shattered" to find the hills she lovingly gazed on for years, were the Tidbinbilla Ranges. She camped in the Brindies for many nights, exploring the tracks and creeks. The Bogong article is a nice little description of her experiences with Ian and the photographer, Ray McJannett, as they explored the Brindabellas...I just found it in my copy of their book, and shortly will load some images to flickr.
