Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the cover: “Wild badgers feed nightly in the ninety- acre wood where he has created a Nature Reserve, but he tried, without success, to persuade his hand-reared badgers to live there by day as well. So he has built an artificial badger sett, twenty yards from his sitting room window, and reared another cub. He did not keep this in any way confined but introduced it to the sett and encouraged it to live, at complete liberty, as naturally as the wild badgers. But its first call, every evening, is to his study window, where it tries to make a burglarious entry. It comes into the house, for a little company — and a tit-bit or so — and then wanders off into the night, to enjoy the free life of the woods, as any wild badger should.”
