The authors have been actively involved in the study of beaver ecology, behaviour and reintroduction for many years.

Observing that 'the beaver is an ecosystem engineer, architect of watery kingdoms and riparian habitats teeming with life', the farmer-turned-ecologist Derek Gow shares an inspirational, often witty, account of his fight to re-establish the once-native species in waterways across England and Scotland in the face of determined opposition from the government, landowners and even some conservationists.
