The hare, a night creature and country-dweller, is a rare sight for most people. They are shape-shifters, witches’ familiars and symbols of fertility. They are arrogant, as in Aesop’s The Hare and the Tortoise, and absurd, as in Lewis Carroll’s Mad March Hare.

In The Private Life of the Hare, John Lewis-Stempel explores myths, history and the reality of the hare. And in vivid prose he celebrates how, in an age when television cameras have revealed so much in our landscape, the hare remains as elusive and magical as ever.
