Overview

A majestic symbol of the great outdoors, elk are widely admired nationwide. They inhabit some of the most rugged and beautiful areas of North America, lending spectacular backdrops to the award-winning photography that illustrates this volume.

Like no other book before, Elk offers a complete introduction to the world of the North American elk. From habits to habitats, Erwin Bauer provides extensive coverage including the elk's ancestors and evolution, range, diet, behavior and instincts, physical characteristics, predators, and conservation issues.

The Bauers capture elk in every season and in many environments from Yellowstone National Park to the Canadian wilderness. They chronicle the creation of such organizations as the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and the National Elk Refuge, and present readers with more than 100 gorgeous color photos, historical black-and-white images, and a range map. Elk is the source for complete details on this regal wild creature.

About the Author:

They have more than a dozen books in print, including Big Game of North America, Yellowstone, Whitetails, Mule Deer, Antlers: Nature's Majestic Crown, and Bears, all published by Voyageur Press.

Editorial Reviews

Outdoor Life
A wonderful introduction to North American elk. Through beautiful pictures and informative text, these animals become accessible to all.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
When Columbus arrived in the West Indies, elk supposedly were the most widespread of all hoofed animals in the New World. Today, four subspecies of Cervus canadensis survive, in California (tule elk), the Northwest (Olympic elk), Manitoba (Plains elk) and the Rocky Mountains (Rocky Mountain elk). Following the formula of their acclaimed Mule Deer, the Bauers give a comprehensive introduction to the elk, accompanied by dazzling photographs. The text covers physiology, habitat, behavior, diet and conservation. One chapter is devoted to antlers, another to rutting. Bauer discusses elk and humans, the National Elk Refuge and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. He points out that habitats can support only a limited number of elk; in the absence of predators, legal hunting is the sole practical means of population control. The author is concerned about the disruption of habitat through logging roads, snowmobiles in Yellowstone Park and encroaching subdivisions. Readers who enjoy the outdoors will appreciate this fine book. Photos. (Sept.)
