A book for those who are interested in the hare as a mythical as well as factual beast. This book covers the history and folklore surrounding the hare. Of course,the hare doesn't know this , it just lives in our fields and tries to avoid being killed by senseless hunters!! In times past the hare has been revered, feared , ridiculed and loathed as well as eaten! There are many myths associated with hares and this book covers most of them. For example, did you know that hares are always referred to as "she" regardless of gender? Hares are now protected in the UK, so much the better when one considers the hell they have been put through in the last 200 years. A fascinating read which will give the reader a true appreciation of this beautiful creature.
