About this deal

Sometime you read a book where the passion of the author and the beauty of the language is so immersive that you reach the end feeling that you’ve been on an incredible journey. Another in the Animal series of handsome, pocket-sized studies of interesting animals and their relations with humanity down the ages. Yet as proposals for reintroducing beavers are underway, re-establishing the beaver in Britain is still a controversial issue. Its “upshot,” to borrow a word from Aldo Leopold, is Gow’s depiction, at once comprehensive and specific, of wetlands’ importance in restoring what had become a simplified, dwindling countryside.

And you don't have to worry about the Kids Reading it beacsue there's no dirty pictures or anything else really. The fun of Derek Gow’s book comes from the way it weaves together the reintroduction of beavers to Britain with his own rollicking life in the cause of ecological restoration. It was a sultry August night in Old Town Scottsdale as Bimisi and Sumguyen made their way from one bar to another. It’s not just about beavers – it’s about humans too, and how, when we really set our minds to it, we can make a difference. The wicked witch Oyin has imprisoned most of the island’s inhabitants in Beaver Towers, and when her powers are complete she will put them to death and rule the island.To me, this book just furthers the standardization of beauty and the normalization of peer pressure.

This book presents a case for our future coexistence with beavers by providing factual information on this species that has now passed from national memory, covering the biology, behaviour and ecology of the Eurasian beaver in a British context, from their early history in archaeology and folklore to their contemporary field signs in the wild.Silly and gets you chuckling (definitely not a children's book) but I was disappointed at the message by the end of "conform or else"; truly a missed chance to rhyme "leave my beaver be" with "beaver diversity" or something. The authors provide an update on their experiences direct from the field, the quarantine area and the veterinary table. Is it possible to combine the increasingly dangerous world of the adventure-park business with the unpredictability of life in a blended family? In his highly engaging way, he conveys beavers’ essential role in the landscape’s biological health and diversity: “.
