Reader's note

This attractive paperback is a 1975 edition of Tarka the Otter by Henry Williamson! This story of an otter is as true as long observation and keen infight could make it. It lets you live with Tarka and see at his level the wild lie of that stretch of Devon country which runs from Dartmoor to the sea, between the rivers Torridge and Taw. With a good map you can follow almost every step of the story, every twist and turn of the rivers and the sandy stretches at the Estuary. To read Tarka for the first time is a tremendous experience whether you are boy or girl, grown manor woman; and it will be strange if, thereafter, you do not look with new understanding at quiet country places where birds and beasts lead such dangerous lives.
