TARKA THE OTTER by Henry Williamson

In this remarkable book, we follow Tarka the Otter through his entire life. We are there from his first to his last breath, through the joys and trials of his life, struggling through the harshest of winters, his life alone and with other otters, as a cub and as a grown otter with cubs of his own.

One feels unease and worry as Tarka has to fight for his life on countless occasions but this is interspersed with wonderfully joyous and comical moments as he grows up from puphood and finds play partners and ultimately creates his own family and takes on the proud role of father.
