Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Though these two books are related, they each serve a different need. Watching Wildlife offers a broad overview that will appeal especially to the armchair naturalist just venturing out. It covers such basics as descriptions of habitat regions and types of animals to find there; when to observe animals (specifying their cycles, both daily and seasonal); and tips for observing animals, arranged by broad group (e.g., birds of prey, waterfowl, bats, and more). More specific advice is offered on what to look for and listen to, how to equip yourself, and categories of public and private land to investigate (e.g., national parks, state parks, sanctuaries, even some private lands). An important chapter deals with the safety and ethics of observing wildlife. Appendixes list state, federal, and Canadian agencies as well as wildlife conservation organizations. For the reader who wants actually to track and observe mammals in the wild, The Complete Tracker provides detailed information on: habitat and range, foods, mating habits, seasonal habits, tracks, scat, signs, and vocalizations. A brief section provides basic advice on how to equip yourself, track, stalk, read sign, and, once found, observe the animals. While this field guide is very useful and engagingly written, don't withdraw Olaus Murie's classic, A Field Guide to Animal Tracks (in the "Peterson Field Guide" series, 1975. 2d ed.). Both books are recommended for public libraries and are suitable for academic and school libraries as well. (Photos not seen for either.)Nancy Moeckel, Miami Univ. Libs., Oxford, Ohio
From Barnes & Noble
Few experiences in the wild are as satisfying as tracking down an animal on its own terms on its own turf. Whether hunting, seeking to capture an animal's image on film or video, or simply as a wilderness experience, successful tracking is a valuable skill. The goal of this book is to make anyone, no matter how experienced they are in the wild, better versed in the fine points of tracking North American wildlife and in the modern tools that can make tracking easier. Animals covered are deer (including white-tailed and mule deer, elk, caribou, and moose), swine, pigs and antelope, bears, wolves and foxes, wild cats, weasels, raccoon, opossum, beaver, porcupine, hares and rabbits, squirrels, and rats and mice. Each animal is detailed, including their habitat and range; foods; mating and seasonal habits; tracks; scat (feces); signs; and vocalizations. Well illustrated with black-and-white photos, track examples, and maps.
