Tarka the Otter: His Joyful Water-Life and Death in the Country of the Two Rivers based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Reading this book was like watching Disney's True-Life Adventures years ago--fascinating, thrilling, sometimes horrifying. The birth to death saga of an otter in the West Country of England in the early part of the 1900's is full of local language and customs, as well as a study of the wildlife which, even then, was rapidly disappearing. Recommended.
Wonderful forward by the actor Paul Scofield. Beautiful descriptions of nature and an engaging story. Hampered somewhat by dialect words from West country England and ultimately a sad story.
