(1977) 1977 reprint. Square 8vo (165 x 215mm). Pp(iv),95+96. B/w plates and illustrations by the author. Green cloth, spine titled in silver gilt.

A new combined edition of "Vix: the story of a fox cub" and "The badgers of Bearshanks." "Vix: The Story of a Fox Cub, tells how the smallest of the litter quickly learned the lessons her mother had to teach; how to smell danger and how to interpret every signal from her surroundings which might make the difference between an empty stomach and a full one." Lots of accurate detail and vivd description, giving a "sharp insight into woodland life." "The Badgers of Bearshanks describes a year in the life of the Badger family, whose centuries-old sett is under the roots of a great beech tree. There is the morning battle with a poacher, the birth of a new litter of cubs and above all, the instinctive ease with which the badgers make and guard their home, far more at home in Bearshanks Wood than even Mr Mead the gamekeeper." A sympathetic but unsentimental story.
