Book by Ferris, Chris
A Customer said A must-have book, especially for those who love badgers!. Chris Ferris (a nom de plume) is very possibly Britain's best naturalist writer. This book distills four years of her experience as observer and, eventually, protectress of the wildlife in the woods near her English country home.As she becomes closer to the badgers, owls and foxes -- many of which develop an extraordinary trust in her -- Ferris also has several dangerous run-ins with badger-diggers and lampers, leading eventually to threats against her life.Most memorable, however, are Ferris's vivid and detailed descriptions of the forest creatures for whom she has such. Excellent book This was one of the best field journal reads I have ever read. I wish there were more field journals published similar to this one. Being able to feel like I was there, experiencing what the author was experiencing was amazing. Definitely an excellent read!
