Tree planting, taking first aid courses and watching less TV aren’t hard to do and, as the book points out, could make your own, or others, lives that little bit better. A wildlife book written almost 100 years ago has recently been re-published to mark the so-called ‘comeback’ of the otter. This secretive and fascinating creature’s life story is told in the book by John Coulson Tregarthen, a noted Cornishman and wildlife expert, who wrote the book, said to have inspired Tarka the Otter, in 1909.
Now, inspired by the returning high levels of otters, which were facing extinction almost 30 years ago, a Cornwall publishing company has again published the book. It is a beautiful account of the life of an otter, from birth to death, in very detailed and descriptive language. Being as old a text as it is, the language and grammar can sometimes be hard to read and follow, but it is nevertheless an enchanting, if unemotional, story of one of Britain’s most loveable creatures.
Many thanks to you who wrote in with your views on the article by Blair Armstrong in the previous issue on renewable and nuclear energy.
