A Lifetime of Badgers - Peter HardyReaders Union, 1975, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Good+ - in Good+ DJ. Unlaminated DJ a little edgeworn and faded with nicks at the head, tail and corners. Top edges of text block dusty. Gently faded at the spine of both the DJ and the book.
Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the cover: “Brock the badger, with his white streaked head and cuddly, ungainly body, holds a special place in our affections. Yet only a year or so ago the badger population of these islands had decreased by 5-10,000 and was falling fast as a result of man’s greed and inhumanity. Fortunately the recent Protection of Badgers Act now affords them some real measure of defence. Peter Hardy, MP, responsible for the passage of this Act through the Commons and an ardent conservationist, reveals how attitudes are changing towards this much misunderstood creature and his own fascination with badgers. A comprehensive study of badgers, this humane book is also a plea for tolerance and a challenging hope for survival in a changing world.”
