5.0 out of 5 stars James Williams The Otter, 12 Sept. 2010
This review is from: The Otter (Hardcover)
James Williams' book is both an unusual and thought-provoking read. It primarily narrates the decline and uncertain rise of the European Otter and examines the human element and endeavour involved.
Never afraid of discussion, this book throws ideas and ethical conundrums into the ring, from the early days of the otter hunts to animal charities policy of releasing hand reared cubs.
The book's value lies in its ability to pull the various research projects and initiatives together into a cohesive story and to examine where we are in our understanding of this most difficult to understand species.
Mr Williams' long personal involvement with so many projects and from his current position of Chairman of the Somerset Otter Group has afforded an insight hard to match. What shines through every page is the author's admiration and compassion for the otter and his determination to give this most special of species the helping hand it deserves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Otters, 7 Sept. 2010
This review is from: The Otter (Hardcover)
James Williams has spent a lifetime studying otters in England. His knowledge and easy literary style have combined to produce a book all readers will enjoy. 'The Otter', gives comprehensive, up to date information on this secretive animal, its decline to near extinction and its recent recovery. The authors enthusiasm, dedication and love of otters shine through each page. A lovely book to read, and made stunning by the best collection of colour photographs of otters ever published in one book.

This review is from: The Otter (Hardcover)
I work as an ecologist and have recently conducted my own research into otter ecology and prey consumption on my local Bristol Avon.

I have read many publications and books on otters and this one is very good.

This book not only describes the ecology of the otter very well, but it also explains the unique insight that the otter hunts had into otter numbers and otter behaviour, and explains the background into the reasons for their decline, which we still do not fully understand.

Easy to read yet extremely informative.
