Fauna Scotica, Animals and People in Scotland

Fauna Scotica, Animals and People in Scotland

Fauna Scotica, Animals and People in Scotland by Polly Pullar and Mary Low

A weighty, hugely informative and beautifully-illustrated book, Fauna Scotica deserves to sit alongside the very best of any of the recent titles published on Scotland’s natural history. Grouped according to habitat – from high mountains to urban centres – it takes a species by species look at the wealth of animals that call Scotland home. But what makes the book so appealing is the way that it also explores our own relationship, past and present, with specific species and reflects on their place in religion, history, folklore and more. A final chapter on mythological creatures is particularly enjoyable.
