A touchingly beautiful and hopeful description of a small mammal and Finland's natural diversity.
Naali disappeared from Finnish nature at the beginning of the 20th century. More than a hundred years later, a remarkable discovery is made in northern Lapland. A pair of polecats seems to have settled at the foot of the fell.
Is it possible to return a once extinct species to nature? Why did the wild mink go extinct in the first place? Will climate change be the fate of the species?
A fascinating and enlivening non-fiction book weaves together a hundred years of the story of Finland and the fox. In the end, it becomes a question of whether a person can correct his mistakes, his own and those of previous generations. Is the bridge between animal and human unbridgeable?
