The Beauty in the Beast : Britain's Favourite Creatures and the People Who Love Them Hardback
by Hugh Warwick
The Beauty in the Beast is a delightful portrait of some of the UK's best-loved wild animals and birds and the colourful enthusiasts who champion their causes.
Meet the water vole-woman from Shropshire, the owl-man from Somerset and Gordon, the dancing toad-fancier.
These and many other fabulously engaging characters carry a deep knowledge of their chosen species within a distinctly quirky shell.
Other animals making an appearance include otters, bats, dolphins, dragonflies, foxes and adders.
Hugh Warwick, animal enthusiast and hedgehog fanatic, writes a series of affectionate and lively homages to the animals of the British Isles, composed of fieldwork and interviews with the people who love and conserve them.
