About this book

Language: French

Lover and ardent defender of the Franco-Swiss Jura mountains and its wildlife, Patrice Raydelet invites us to discover a flagship species: the ibex. This herbivore with impressive horns is one of the most illustrious representatives of the Jura mountain fauna. It is in the magnificent nature reserve of Creux-du-Van, in the Canton of Neuchâtel, Switzerland, that the author observed, photographed and accompanied the goats. His observations lasted hundreds of hours during each season, extending for over twenty years.

Summary in French:
Amoureux et ardent défenseur du Massif jurassien franco-suisse et de sa faune sauvage, Patrice Raydelet nous invite à découvrir l'intimité d'une espèce emblématique: le bouquetin. L'herbivore aux cornes impressionnantes est l'un des représentants les plus illustres de la faune montagnarde jurassienne. C'est dans la somptueuse réserve naturelle du Creux-du-Van, dans le Canton de Neuchâtel, en Suisse, que l'auteur a observé, photographié et accompagné les bouquetins. Ses observations ont duré des centaines d'heures pour chacune des saisons, cela pendant plus de vingt ans.
