FAUNA SCOTICA

ANIMALS AND PEOPLE IN SCOTLAND

Polly Pullar and Mary Low

 

Scotland is home to a huge and diverse range of wildlife. This informative and beautifully illustrated book is the most complete companion to Scottish animals and birds available.
 
Themed around various habitats (mountain; bog and moor; woods; lochs and rivers; croft and farm; sea and seashore; and about town), and including material on mythical beasts, it features a wealth of information on hundreds of species, and also includes our wonderful native farm livestock.
 
Packed with descriptions and natural history information, the text is interspersed with much detail - historical, folklore, anecdotal and even culinary - which offers fascinating insights into the role of animals and birds in our cultural life and the way man has interacted with them over a period of thousands of years.
 
Aimed at a wide audience and highly readable - Fauna Scotica is a valuable addition to every country enthusiast's library.
