The Golden Mole: Katherine Rundell

£14.99

A lavishly illustrated compendium of the staggering lives of some of the world’s most endangered animals, ‘The Golden Mole’ is a chance to be awestruck and lovestruck – to fall for the likes of the seahorse, the narwhal and, as astonishing and endangered as them all, the human.

Description

A gloriously illustrated and fascinating bestiary of the world’s most extraordinary endangered animals – a treasure trove of vanishing wonders.

The world is more astonishing, more miraculous and more wonderful than our wildest imaginings.

In this passionately persuasive and sharply funny book, Katherine Rundell tells us how and why.

***

A swift flies two million kilometres in its lifetime. That’s far enough to get to the moon and back twice over – and then once more to the moon. A pangolin keeps its tongue furled in a pouch by its hip, a Greenland shark can live five hundred years, a wombat once inspired a love poem.
