John Lewis-Stempel

The Private Life of the Hare

The hare, a night creature that lives in the country, is a rare sight. We know them from legends and stories. They are shape-shifters, witches’ familiars and symbols of fertility. In the absence of facts, speculation and fantasy have overwhelmed us. But what are the real hares like? In this book, John Lewis-Stempel explores the myths and the reality of the animal. In an age when television cameras have revealed so much about the flora and fauna of our world, the hare remains as elusive and magical as ever.
