"There are many ways of seeing the countryside. You can travel about in a car, you can pedal along on a bicycle, or you can use Shanks's pony. All of them have certain advantages, but if you have a caravan, you carry your home about with you." This book deals with the intimate lives of the squirrel, fox and hedgehog in story form, and yet is full of information as to the life and habits of each animal. Romany, travelling about in his caravan, with his spaniel dog Raq, introduces these wild animals to Tim, the farmer's small son, and, whilst watching them, throws fascinating sidelights on the ways of the snipe, curlew, owl, rabbit, stoat, kestrel and other wild creatures.
