Absolutely lovely book, the cover and even the quality of the paper, not to mention the wonderful animal watercolors and charming folklore/history. Im in love with the old Irish relationships to animals...never speak to a horse as if he is not a Christian, if you meet a weasel on the road take care to greet him politely, always inform bees of their masters death...oh, and on Christmas Eve be sure to give the cows in the barn an extra treat since at midnight they acquire the gift of speech in honor of the special role they played being present at Christs birth.

These are few examples from this book, also included are the ways these animals were included in the myth of other cultures as well as a historical perspective when necessary. Many notes and nice bibliography too.
