A Herd of Red Deer revolutionised the way that British wildlife was studied. Darling spent two years with the red deer and this book describes in beautiful detail all that he learnt. From the excitement of the rutting season to the struggle for mastery of the herd, Darling is able to express the changes in the deer community throughout the year with a warmth and personality that few scientist have. As part of the Luath Wild Lives' series the original text is complimented with diagrams, maps and new photographs. In the introduction Walter Stephen shows how A Herd of Deer inspired a generation to follow in Darling's footsteps, t o love the Highlands and to be aware of the big environmental issues of the 21st century.
