Overview

North American Wildlife is a stunning look at the continent's amazing creatures, from the vast herds of caribou that roam the Arctic tundra to the endangered manatees in Florida's waters. Expert nature writer David Jones presents a compelling look at animal behavior.

Prominent North American wildlife photographers have captured the most intriguing moments of life in the wild. A grizzly digging for razor clams on the shores of the Pacific, a wolf nursing her pups in the Rocky Mountains, and a Florida panther resting in the sun---each image is a glimpse of animals few humans will ever see.

The species of North America are survivors of past ice age and centuries of human hunting. Today, they face human encroachment, changing climates, and increased pollution. Yet, they continue to survive, adapting to each new challenge. This book is about their remarkable strategies.

Editorial Reviews

Don Gayton
Wildlife books are published by the truckload, and many of them present the natural history of a single species. North American Wildlife stands out from the rest by classifying many of the continent's creatures according to behaviour and survival tactics. The chapter called "Hobos," for example, explains why grizzlies and polar bears travel great distances even though they are not efficient walkers. This large-format book....copiously illustrated with the work of the best Canadian and American wildlife photographers...is well worth its cover price.
