Written by an expert in Celtic studies and a naturalist and wildlife guide, this sumptuous coffee table book is a glorious celebration of Scottish People and wildlife - and a lovely Christmas gift. Informative and beautifully illustrated it is the most complete companion to Scottish animals and birds available. As well as descriptions and biological information, the text is interspersed with much detail - historical, folklore, anecdotal and even culinary - which offers fascinating insights into the role of animals in our cultural life and the way man has interacted with them over a period of thousands of years.
