Scottish Mammals

   

eBook also available from the iBookstore

Scotland is a treasure-chest of natural history, but it also offers a wealth of wonderful literature about its wild creatures. Delving into Robin Hull’s own experience of the mammals in Scotland and drawing on the texts of many of the great Scottish natural-history writers, this book, the first of its kind, examines the historical and cultural relationship between humans and mammals in Scotland over the last 10,000 years. All the wild mammalian species of Scotland are covered, including marine mammals which have been sighted in Scottish waters, such as walruses and narwhals.

Insightful and meticulously researched, Scottish Mammals is an analysis of the impact of humans on the planet, as well as a riveting study of the facts and fictions associated with mammals in Scotland.

Robin Hull was born in Hertfordshire and was educated at Christ’s Hospital and St Mary’s Hospital Medical School in London. He worked as a General Practitioner and as a Professor of General Practice at the Free University of Amsterdam. He now lives in Strathtay in Perthshire where he works as a freelance writer and lecturer. His numerous publications include medical and natural history books and articles, as well as fiction.
