Nature's Wildlife Weapons
Twelve-year-old James Ryan has been fascinated by science and natural history from a very early age.

Now this young member of the Canterbury Museum Explorer’s Club and avid collector of artefacts wants to share his vast knowledge of wild beasts with other young history lovers in the form of this, his very first book.
