"Few people today are able to perceive animals with unspoiled eyes: we either sympathise too much or we accept them passively as a footnote to a man-made world. To find wonder and mystery at all we have to turn to the exotics, the lions and the leopards. But Grant Watson, well known for his writing on nature and philosophy, turns an innocent eye on the common animals and creatures all round us; and he lights up their splendour and mystery, their separateness. ...He tells of many... animals in myth and splendour (and, under man, in decline), from stallion to ox, from boar to fox, from hare to ram, from swan to cock, but not only with these attractive beasts but with the wonderful (and even beautiful) lives of toad, snail, worm, snake, salmon and crab". Chapters include:- The horse; The dog; The cat; The ox; The pig; The goat; The sheep; The hare; The fox; The swan; The hawk; The raven; The fowl; The tortoise; The fish; The toad and the frog; The crab; The flies and scavengers; The earthworm; Slugs and snails; The serpent.
