Being A Beast

Author: Charles Foster

Publisher: Profile Books (2016)

Charles Foster wanted to know what life is really like for a badger, an otter, a deer, a fox, a swift. So he tried it. He lived in a hole like a badger for weeks, eating earthworms. As an otter he swam the rivers of north Devon at night. Like an urban fox he scavenged from the dustbins of London’s East End, and he was hunted as a red deer might be in the Scottish Highlands. He followed a swift’s migration route from Oxford to West Africa. A new departure for nature writing and an intimate look at life in the wild, Being a Beast brings together neuroscience, psychology, natural history and memoir, connecting with the beast in us all.
