A dramatic account of the ways of beavers by a noted naturalist. Naturalist Hope Ryden braved all seasons and weather over a four-year period to document the comings and goings of a pair of beavers -- Lily and Inspector General -- and their offspring in a New York State park. Her patience and fortitude paid off: She won acceptance and was able to move among the animals she describes as "gnomes, who work magic and transform their surroundings during the dark of night".
