Marianne Taylor is a birdwatcher, dragonfly-finder and mammal-seeker from Kent, England. She has written many books on wildlife; her titles include British Birds of Prey and NatureWatch for the RSPB, while her narrative works include Dragonflight and Way of the Hare, a Times Book of the Year 2017.

In this detailed, absorbing study, Taylor makes us all dukes for a day, granting us a privileged glimpse into the life of the hare -- Alex Preston * The Guardian *
