Overview

Nature writing and photography at their most exciting. North America's wildlife have endured the challenges put to them -- human encroachment, changing climates, and increased pollution -- with new trials forcing them to adapt as best they can. Their struggles and remarkable strategies are chronicled in North American Wildlife.

Complementing the compelling writing of David Jones are 400 of the most intriguing in-the-wild moments of wildlife ever captured:

• A grizzly digging for razor clams on the shores of the Pacific

• Wolves nursing their pups high in the Rocky Mountains

• A Florida panther resting in the sun

• Cougars and bobcats hunting

• Rabbits, hares, raccoons, and pikas foraging for food

• Stellar sea lions sunbathing off the Baja peninsula

• Humpback whales feeding near Alaska's coastal fjords

The expansive parklands of North America provide a stunning backdrop for this dramatic close-up look at life in the wild.

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.
