Reindeer: An Arctic Life; Tilly Smith
In this enchanting book, self-confessed 'reindeer geek' Tilly Smith leads the reader through the cold and extraordinary natural history of the reindeer with charming anecdotes about her own Scottish herd. A creature that is often used to adorn the winter season, the reindeer has been domesticated in Eurasia for longer than the horse while in North America it exists side by side with the humans, never tamed yet vital to the native settlements. Despite the popularity of the image of the reindeer, they are rarely seen in real life. This beautiful, comforting little book is sure to kindle affection for one of nature's most adaptable mammals, from fur-covered hooves to downy antlers.
