This new, expanded edition of this highly-acclaimed natural history of the hare contains much new material, and 75 stunning new photographs among the 230 colour images of hares feeding their young, boxing, courting, eating, sheltering and playing. The Hare is the most comprehensive book available on this enigmatic and much-loved British mammal, covering in words and photographs its life-cycle, its challenges, its legends and myths, hares around the world, and its future. The photographs reflect David Mason's lifetime passion for capturing the hare on camera in all situations
Reviews of the first edition:
"What is there to say about a hare? A hell of a lot, is the answer. Jill Mason has tackled the subject from every imaginable angle and produced an unexpectedly fascinating book."
– The Independent
"By combining images of wild hare behaviour – from mating to being predated – a thorough pictorial reference has been produced. With hares so popular with wildlife artists, it will provide a source of inspiration and reference. A delight for general readers."
– BBC Wildlife Magazine
