From the Back Cover
After their legendary journey out of danger and into the safe haven of White Deer Park, the animals of Farthing Wood look forward to getting used to their new life in the nature reserve.
But winter is drawing in: the nights are colder and food for the animals is scarce. Other animals in the park are unfriendly and want to make trouble, and around the Park there are the perils of hunters' traps, as well as humans and their machines. Will life ever return to normal for the animals of Farthing Wood...? --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Of course, I had my favourite animals. Badger for one who is not only wise, but also not as highly strung as Owl or Fox, as well as the sarcastic Adder, who is often misunderstood.
I do have a few qualms with this book though - Colin Dann fails to rid his own personal vendetta against expansion in this novel. His obvious love of nature, naturalism and preserving anything 'green' although admirable shines through a little strong in certain parts. I also found parts where his writing lacked oomph - and if I had a £1 for every time he uses an adverb, well I'd be much richer. He also didn't seem to care that he killed the pheasants off, with no one mourning the loss.
