Silent Fields; The Long Decline of a Nation's Wildlife
Over the years mankind has taken it upon himself to wage war against nature, against those species of birds and mammals which he believes conflict with his livelihood. This book is about that war of attrition against the native mammals and birds of England and Wales from the middle ages to the present.
The author has undertaken years of research and presents an accurate and detailed picture of the history of a nation's wildlife and the often devastating impact and extinction that we have forced on our ecology.
