Description:

This natural history classic, first published in 1909, is a minutely observed, endlessly fascinating and graphic tale of wild animals in the Cornish countryside. The result of many years spent studying these fascinating creatures at close quarters, this is an unsentimental study of a family of otters, from the birth of cubs to childhood and maturity. We see the seasons change as the youngsters mature in river waters, upland pools and estuary creeks. We read of their nocturnal journeys in search of food, of their skirmishes with buzzards and domestic dogs; of being chased and sometimes killed, by otter hounds in the endless cycle of Nature. Said to have been the inspiration for Henry Williamson's classic work, Tarka the Otter, this beautifully written celebration of these glorious creatures presents a vivid snapshot of wild animals in a countryside teeming with interest, beauty and danger—mostly in human form.
