'Mike Tomkies name is synonymous with the wildcat and he probably knows more about them in the wild than any other naturalist. ...Nobody has studied wildcats as much as Mike. His research led to a list of statements on page five of this new book. He states what the books say and then gives the true version from his own experiences. ...The book reveals Mike's plans to breed a wildcat family and prepare them for a return to the wild, and it is a fascinating account. The photographs are excellent and really enhance the very readable text.' - Ray Collier, Former Chief Warden, Highlands. Highland News, North Star, Lochaber News '... His story is illuminating... ...the author's eventual taming of a wildcat kitten forms a fascinating story which, still, very few people have been privileged to witness. ... ...Tomkies' books must be the first port of call for anyone interested in Scottish wildcats. ...will be deeply appreciated by anyone with any interest in our native wildlife and its conservation.' - Habitat
