Part Five

Brecon Beacons author Jonathan Mullard talks about his favourite wildlife book in the part 5 of our conversation.

The Leaping Hare by Welsh teacher and folklorist, George Ewart Evans, is one of Mullard’s all-time favourites. He loves the integration of the oral history of the hare with its actual historic biology. Although things have moved on in the decade since the book was written, it is still a staple on Mullard’s bookshelves.
