Black & White version. Hedgehog populations are in serious decline in many places. This book is dedicated to improving the quality of life of hedgehogs and increasing the chances of survival in towns. This is not about turning hedgehogs into pets but how to make our gardens more interesting and safe for them and reverse the population trend. This is an internet linked book with its own website and links to you-tube clips etc. Signed copies and other books by this author available via www.astronomyroadshow.com at a slightly lower cost too. There will always be someone more experienced and qualified than anyone in any field. This is my accumulation of over 10 years of experience of handling wild hedgehogs along with advice from a wildlife hospital, a vet, the British Hedgehog Preservation Society and reading several other related books. I have a book out on Satellite Spotting after accumulating 40 years of experience; no doubt, someone with 50 years experience will bring a book out too. Note; this is an economy black & white version. A colour copy of the same book is also available. This is printed by Amazon, I can't control the quality of the print myself.
Farid ud-Din Attar occupies a prominent place in the roll of distinguished Persian poets. His most famous work on Sufism, written eight centuries ago, is the Mantiq-ut-Tayr, or the "Colloquy of the Birds," an allegorical poem in which the gifted mystic describes the quest of the Birds (symbolising Sufi pilgrims) for the Simurg (the Lord of Creation). I should explain that I have omitted a good deal which I thought would not interest a foreign reader or would tend to obscure rather than illuminate the salient points of the discourse. I have also thought fit to give a free rather than literal translation of the selected passages, so that the work may be of interest to the casual reader as well as to the student of spiritual and mystic lore.
