Few authors are better placed to provide us with a fascinating glimpse of the legends and stories associated with Britainís countryside. Trevor Beerís lifetime passion for wildlife and all matters relating to country lore and legend has provided him with a wealth of information which he includes in this book.
Here, Trevor draws on his vast knowledge of all things concerning wildlife and folklore, from ancient Celtic beliefs in the power possessed of our British trees and plants, old recipes and curatives, through to how the behaviour of animals and birds can be used to forecast extreme weather and natural catastrophes. This book, illustrated with the authorís own drawings, provides a source of reference and delight for all those who love wildlife and country matters.
