"A fascinating text, many illustrations and good value for money . . . a 'must-have' of a book."--Virginia McKenna "North Devon Journal"
"Otter is the most brilliant mix of facts ancient and modern about the otter species and its vulnerability to man's seemingly insatiable need to hunt the poor animal for reasons other than survival. I am sure the book will help to ensure that the hunting of otters will never return to this country--and I hope other lands will follow this example . . . A fascinating and illuminating book."--Virginia McKenna "Guardian"
"Daniel Allen and Reaktion's accomplished production of Otter befit its exceptionally charismatic and beautiful subject, and skillfully tracks the manner in which conservation lobbying and literature helped transform the otter from victim to survivor. It is to be hoped that it will inspire renewed efforts to study and conserve an animal which is now showing worrying signs of decline."--Virginia McKenna "Times Literary Supplement"
"The otter's reputation is well served by this readable account."--Virginia McKenna "Countryman"
"This monograph tells both sides of the story and pulls no punches and must be the best account and resume of otters and their problems and their success than any other book I have read. It deals with the whole spectrum from persecution to folklore and sport to commercial enterprise."--Virginia McKenna "Highland News"
A fine furry paean.-- "Guardian"
Daniel Allen gives a captivating account of our changing relationship with the otter--once persecuted, now adored.-- "BBC Wildlife Magazine"
"Did you know that the otter is J K Rowling's favorite animal? Or that the earliest evidence of its existence dates back 20 million years? Or that the fur of the sea otter is the densest in the animal kingdom? All these and numerous other intriguing snippets of otter lore are contained within a beautifully presented volume as charming and captivating as its subject matter . . . Printed on high-quality paper with gorgeous illustrations on nearly every page . . . you will love this one.'"--Virginia McKenna "Daily Mail"

Loads of interesting stuff on otter hunting and history but this wasn't what I was looking for . I skimmed through my copy and resold as I didn't think I'd look at it again.
