Publisher Description

The Badger Book takes its place as part of Graffeg’s compact, accessible Nature Book series, exploring our relationship with some of Britain’s best-loved wild creatures.


This addition introduces the wonderfully mysterious and enigmatic Meles meles to the newly curious with fresh information in store for those with a long-standing interest.

An inhabitant of these lands for thousands of years, badgers have been both revered and reviled, cherished and tormented, beloved and brutalised – The Badger Book takes a closer look at Britain’s largest carnivorous mammal.


Alongside magical photography, we examine the science – and politics – around bTB and the controversial badger cull as well as introducing a passionate group of ordinary people dedicated to rescuing them, followed by a meander through the myth, legend, art and literature which has incorporated them into our culture.
