The Golden Mole: and Other Living Treasure by Katherine Rundell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Well now, this little gem of a non-fiction is pretty much perfect if you want a short, prettily written rundown of a number of once-common, often talked about, species. It is more poignant because they are almost all, unfortunately, disappearing.
With many references to historical anecdotes, literature, and even poetry, we get a sweet look at everything from elephants to seahorses, wolves to hedgehogs, to so much more.
If I could, I would recommend everyone read this, if only to have a clear-eyed look at the nature we're all losing.
