Description: "This story of an otter is as true as long observation and keen insight could make it. It lets you live with Tarka and see at his level the wild life of that stretch of Devon country which runs from Dartmoor to the sea, between the rivers of Torridge and Taw. With a good map (1 in. to the mile) you can follow almost every step of the story, every twist and turn of the rivers and the sandy stretches at the Estuary."

Beautiful b&w illustrations head each chapter.

Cover slightly creased in lower-right corner (refer to image), otherwise covers are in very good condition for age. Inside covers lightly foxed. Pages lightly tanned, but unmarked and tightly bound.
