: Three of the bestselling, most acclaimed fiction titles of the past decade, reissued with stylish and attractive new covers. Turned into a major feature film, Janni Howker's The Nature of the Beast is an immensely powerful and gripping story about a community devastated by unemployment and the fear of an unknown beast roaming the moors - and which young Bill Coward is determined to track down. Isaac Campion is an equally explosive tale, depicting the difficult, often bitter relationship between a son and his horse-dealer father at the turn of the century. Badger on the Barge contains five stories, each concerning the relationship between the young and the old and full of memorable characters. Each of these books is a major award-winner.
