Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Begin, and you won't be able to stop reading this-alone or aloud. It sizzles with the energy and intensity that Dr. Ramsay and her nurturing staff devote to sick and injured birds and other animals at the Wildlife Center she established in 1985. And when you finish, your eyes, like mine and the good doctor's, will become teary when she releases a bobcat, hawks, and a bald eagle she's healed.
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
It's a fascinating account of the work of wildlife veterinarian, Dr. Kathleen Ramsay and the staff and volunteers at her New Mexico clinic. Readers learn about the various animals (beavers, bobcat kittens, baby skunks, and more) that Dr. Ramsay takes care of and helps to reintroduce into the wild. The book won several awards, including the John Burroughs Nature Book for Young Readers.
School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-A lively photo-essay that shows the determined efforts of veterinarian Ramsay caring for injured animals to return them to the wild, featuring the day-to-day operation of her New Mexico Wildlife Center. (Sept. 1994)
School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-An engaging picture of wildlife rehabilitation. From beaver kits to deer to great horned owls, the dedicated staff at the Wildlife Center in Espaola, New Mexico, headed by veterinarian Kathleen Ramsay, deals with an array of injuries and situations. Readers learn about the circumstances that land the various creatures in the center, about its operations, the kinds of surgeries that are performed, and the monitoring and medicating of the patients. Part two focuses on ``baby season,'' a time of year when many orphans are taken in. The effects of imprinting are explained in detail-how humans as ``mothers'' can present difficulties when later setting the animals free. The last section, ``Return to the Wild,'' tells of the various nature reserves that take in once-injured creatures and protect them, and describes the joyous occasion of releasing three birds of prey into the wild. This well-written book, illustrated with many clear, full-color photographs, will prove interesting to anyone curious about this timely subject.-Helen Rosenberg, Chicago Public Library, IL
