About this book

From the seascapes of Acadia to the vast desert of Death Valley, America's national parks are home to hundreds of species of wild mammals. This book opens with descriptions of the history and landscape of each park, and gives an overview of conservation issues and tips on sighting particular animals. The second half of the book provides a thorough description of each type of mammal, including appearance, behaviour, and feeding habits. The environmental issues affecting the mammal populations are highlighted for each group. This book provides a rare glimpse into the habits and habitats of mammals in all 56 national parks - captivating creatures in wonderous landscapes.

"Appealing to outdoor enthusiasts and wildlife aficionados alike, this volume combines information about U.S. national parks with material on the animals that inhabit those parks... Color photos throughout make the book delightful to browse." -- Library Journal
