About this book

Elusive, ethereal, evocative – the hare permeates our consciousness like no other creature. Despite facing ever increasing environmental pressures, it still retains its ability to both delight and confound in equal measure. Published in conjunction with The Hare Preservation Trust, The Hare Book offers a unique insight into this most fascinating of creatures; from its place in nature to its many appearances in art and literature. With never before published scientific research, and original artwork from Jackie Morris this is a unique and long overdue look at the hare in all its many guises.

Sections include:
– Why a hare is not a rabbit
– The hare in nature
– The hare in danger
– The hare in myth and legend
– Illustrated short story by Jackie Morris
– The hare in art and literature
