This is the tale of Tarka the Otter's growth to adulthood in the country of the Two Rivers. It is also the story of his life in the wild and how he is hunted by his enemy, the great hound Deadlock.
Overall as above five stars. Recommend to any reader no matter how old. A classic

Tarka the otter is a beautiful and heart breaking account of the short life of a wild otter. While charming it does not shy away from the harsh realities of the hunt and the cruelty of man, leaving many listeners with a deep sense of guilt for the crimes of their own race. A must- listen for anyone who loves otters and other British wildlife.
