In a previous volume Henry Tegner wrote of Holy Island, that strange, fascinating, demi-isle which lies off the coast of Northumberland. Now he has come inland to the Cheviot hills whose charm and remoteness he writes of with his faultless power of subtle-description. The famous wild cattle of Chillingham and the wild goats of the Cheviot massif are peculiar to Northumberland but deer, foxes, badgers, otters, hares, stoats and bats, to mention but a few, may be encountered within the limits of the territory which is the scene of this book. However. The Charm of the Cheviots is not confined to natural history - it tells of the potential sport within the region, its romantic spirit and the doings of days lone gone by. Henry Tegner has lived in Northumberland for nearly half a century. This is his twenty-third book. He is a vice-president of the Natural History Society of Northumberland, Durham and Newcastle upon Tyne and a member of the Fauna Preservation Society. Overall in good condition, some minor rubbing to the book sleeve.
