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. Derek is a naturalist with a strong case of beaver fever shared effusively with equal doses of charm, belligerence and artistic genius. But now the beaver is on the brink of a comeback, with wild beaver populations, licensed and unlicensed, emerging all over Britain. Despite the text being only 44 pages long, the authors cover everything you might want to know about these fascinating rodents. Though this book showed how we should also consider the opinion or suggestions of other people, what you still feel about yourself matter the most.

In no way would I ever read this to a kid like some of the below comments suggest, but it would make a great gag gift. A witty and passionate guide, he’ll have you rooting for the rodents from page one, but the real stars of the story may be the colorful characters working on their behalf, including the author himself.

Another in the Animal series of handsome, pocket-sized studies of interesting animals and their relations with humanity down the ages. providing of course, reintroductions are carried out with the blessing of the surrounding landowners and the local community. 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.

Derek Gow has produced a fearless work – friends and foe alike feel the witty sting of his barbed tongue. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

This beautifully illustrated book, filled with the strange history and improbable tales of the beaver, will delight all readers. She is the author of The Breathless Zoo: Taxidermy and the Cultures of Longing (2012) and has curated natural history exhibits for the Museum of Vancouver and the Beaty Biodiversity Museum at the University of British Columbia.
