The pride of the litter was Tarka, Little Water Wanderer, the name the ancients gave otters in Britains long-vanished tribal past. First published in 1927, this classic story of Tarkas life in the country of the Two Rivers has charmed generations of readers. It pictures a never-to-be-forgotten rural England and, through the character of Tarka, lets us experience nature in her infinite variety.Beautifully written, highly dramatic, a great story of the natural world. Unreservedly recommended. (B-O-T Editorial Review Board)
