A Lifetime of Badgers by Peter Hardy

Content-Type Factual Book
Description Brock the badger, with his white streaked head and cuddly, ungainly, body, holds a special place in our affections. Sadly, this attractive mammal, indigenous to Britain since before human-time, has been so persecuted that its name has been taken into the language as a verb meaning to worry incessantly. As an object of suspicion and superstition, the badger was too often killed and was in real danger of eventual extinction.
Peter Hardy, in his capacity as a Member of Parliament, was responsible for the passing of the Protection of Badgers Act, which affords them much better protection than before. In this books, Peter Hardy reveals how attitudes are changing for the better.
Summary There is much more to this book than simple politics; as the book includes some very good descriptions of the badger itself, its habits and habitat; and is nicely illustrated with some excellent pen and ink drawings.
