The moose is Sweden's most storied animal. It is a sizeable beast, the largest of the Scandinavian forest and astonishing in its ancient manifestation. This magnificent book provides descriptions of not only the life and biology of the moose but also its history and relationships with people. Nothing else in Swedish fauna has been worshipped as the moose has; no other wild animal has held the same significance for man. This book was selected by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) as the Best Nature Book in Sweden.
