About this deal

Since the early 1990s - in the face of outright opposition from government, landowning elites and even some conservation professionals - Gow has imported, quarantined and assisted the reestablishment of beavers in waterways across England and Scotland.

She is the author of The Breathless Zoo: Taxidermy and the Cultures of Longing (2012) and has curated natural history exhibits for the Museum of Vancouver and the Beaty Biodiversity Museum at the University of British Columbia. The UK is amongst the world’s most wildlife depleted countries, in spite of the fact that we have over three million nature-loving voices. But now the beaver is on the brink of a comeback, with wild beaver populations, licensed and unlicensed, emerging all over Britain. Bringing Back the Beaver … is a rich and, frankly, fucking funny insight into the human attitudes, systems and bureaucracy that have impeded faster progress to reintroducing this keystone species back into the British landscape.And you don't have to worry about the Kids Reading it beacsue there's no dirty pictures or anything else really. To get started you’ll need to contact us with your book’s detailed synopsis, your ideas, key themes, and preferred style. Derek Gow is a freelance ecologist who has worked with beavers and water voles in Britain for over 20 years. Despite the text being only 44 pages long, the authors cover everything you might want to know about these fascinating rodents.

Its “upshot,” to borrow a word from Aldo Leopold, is Gow’s depiction, at once comprehensive and specific, of wetlands’ importance in restoring what had become a simplified, dwindling countryside. Read more about the condition New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages.I read it because I thought there was no way that this book could possibly be about what I think it’s about. The authors have been actively involved in the study of beaver ecology, behaviour and reintroduction for many years. It’s also a keen lament for the nature we’ve stamped out, and an impassioned ode to rewilding that will inspire Beaver Believers in Britain and beyond.

On one double page, numerous men can be seen running from Brenda and her beaver as the text reads: "Brenda's beaver's big, Brenda's beaver's hairy. Derek Gow might be the most colorful character in all of Beaverdom – a wry, profane truth teller who is equal parts yeoman farmer, historical ecologist, and pirate. Holy Hell, take me a little to figure out what was talking about, but was kind of funny, but not exactly something I'm agree,.

With a piercing and evocative style, Tuomainen was one of the first to challenge the Scandinavian crime-genre formula, and his poignant, dark and hilarious The Man Who Died became an international bestseller, shortlisting for the Petrona and Last Laugh Awards.

providing of course, reintroductions are carried out with the blessing of the surrounding landowners and the local community. The fun of Derek Gow’s book comes from the way it weaves together the reintroduction of beavers to Britain with his own rollicking life in the cause of ecological restoration. No le hagan caso a nadie chicas, si quieren traer su castor todo peludo, háganlo con toda la confianza. This isn’t really a children’s book but I feel like most children will miss the double entendres (so it should be OK for them to read this) which means this would be a really funny book for the entire family to read together (and make storytime more fun for the parents).

A magic spell whisks Philip away on his new kite to a far-off island where he meets the beavers – Mr Edgar and his grandson, Baby B. This is part of a series of kids' books that are for parents to read and laugh at the double entendres that fly over their kids' heads at storytime. This book familiarises readers once again, after almost 400 years of its absence, with the Eurasian beaver, providing essential information on its requirements in our human dominated landscape.
