Review

Elder takes reader on an evocative quest to find some of the amazing wildlife that we are lucky enough to have sharing our island with us. You might read it in an armchair, but it'll make you want to get your books on.
- Tony Juniper, conservationis, campaigner and president of The Wildlife Trusts
A terrific book that's very easy to love.
- Daily Mail
It's a dream to scout out the UK's greatest natural treasures – and find them!
- Chris Packham
This is no mere rarity twitch. Laced with humour, the book celebrates the struggle to save Britain's most threatened species.
- BBC Wildlife
Potentially a bleak tome chronicling the catastrophic decline of our wildlife, this is in fact full of verve, wit and optimism.
- BBC Countryfile
In its modest way, this delightful book is a triumph, too, because it reminds us that, out there, maybe just under that stone, the smallest spider is worthy of life.
- Daily Mail
In Charlie Elder's quest to seek out endangered species now almost invisible nationwide, he brings back travellers' tales of wild places, feral landscapes and creatures of legend. Added to which, he is a cheerful, gregarious companion and guide.
- Saga
Thoroughly entertaining and informative from page one, Few and Far Between presents a delightful adventure for the reader - an expansive celebration of diversity.
- Western Morning News, Devon
In search of Britain's rarest animals...Charlie Elder encounters some of the UK's more remote spots and the good souls dedicated to preserving them. Now there's a job worth a little celebrating.
- Wanderlust
Charlie Elder's adventures are as strange and engaging as the wonderful creatures he sees. As he ticks each challenge off his list, you are as enthralled by his excitement as he is by his triumphs.
- Daily Mail
A countrywide romp
- BBC Countryfile
Jovial as his tone is most of the time, there is no mistaking the seriousness of Elder's intent ... The bleak statistics mount up in a readable, important book.
- Daily Mail
His enthusiasm and good humour are so infection that you are soon as fascinated as he is by the wart-biter cricket, the spiny seahorse and the gargoyle-featured Bechstein's bat.
- Daily Mail
