The Leaping Hare, Paperback Book


A reissue of a rare and remarkable book about every aspect of the life and legend of the wild hare - in nature, poetry, folklore, history and art.

Much of it is drawn from the oral testimony of countrymen (including poachers) still living when the book was written. 'Here, from stubble to stewing pot, are all the facts that can be assembled; science, literature, mythology, superstition, semantics, venery, and a rich swathe of countryman's talk . . . This delightful book.' Observer
