5.0 out of 5 stars hedgehogabilia, 11 Dec. 2008
This is an utterly charming book, it is funny and gently serious, a robust rummage through hedgehogabilia. So close up are they to the reader that you can almost hear them snuffling.

5.0 out of 5 stars paying respect, 23 Feb. 2008
Review from Jay Griffiths, author of "Wild: An Elemental Journey"

This is one of the rarest, most utterly original books there is, and indeed could ever be. It is written by someone whose soul is that of a magician and poet and whose art is so triumphant with sheer spirit that every sentence is radical and radicalizing. It is a book whose comprehension of the human condition is generous, natural and enormous. It describes the necessity of nature not just for human being but for human thinking; this is a cry for the protection of the human mind.

It has deeply influenced my own thinking, from the moment I read it, and has remained one of the best books I've ever read.
