A good natural history of the hare, with excursions into sport and history. "There are three kinds of hare in Britain. The Common or Brown hare, the Blue, or Mountain Hare, and the Irish Hare. Hares are numerous in some years and scarce in others. Their overall population in Britain may fluctuate very appreciably from one year to another, but we do not really know as yet just how or why. Does a severe winter reduce the hare population in a marked manner? Or is it some kind of disease which thins down their number? These things we have still to learn". Chapters include: a little nomenclature and biology; Partly historical; The Brown Hare; The Blue Hare; The Irish Hare; Hybrids; The diseases of the Hare; Hares and their ways; Relations to agriculture and forestry; The hunting of the Hare; Beagling and beaglers; Hunting the Hare in Northumberland; Coursing; The shooting of Hares; Americana.
