Scotland boasts 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; urban), and including material on mythical beasts, it features a wealth of information on hundreds of species. 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.
