From dogs to curlews, sheep to people, the animals we live with tell us much about ourselves. In these stories, set in the bleak and eerie landscape of the Yorkshire Pennines, domestic struggles collide with the wild as humans fight for control - often making a bargain with the devil. These stories are well  written, with an elegant style. The characters are believable and fully formed, as Hildyard inhabits the different voices throughout.
