About this book

Tells the story of carnivores and our intricate relationships with them. Illustrated with specially commissioned drawings, it deals with the wild beauty of carnivores and their conservation, but also with furs and medicine, man-eaters and sheep-killers, explaining in straightforward terms the role of carnivores in nature, how this impacts on human lives, our art and literature, and why we instinctively respond to them.
