A Secret World Beyond Our Senses
By Catherine Barr
Illustrated by Anne Wilson
Sounds no-one can hear, scents no-one can smell, colours we can't see, magnetic waves we can't feel – but some animals can, and use them every day
Without 'invisible nature' life on our planet would not exist. This book shows how animals use it, and also how humans have learned how to tap into its powers in all sorts of important ways.
