About this book

Resourceful, belligerent and unbelievably sure-footed, the mountain goat Oreamnos americanus is a survivor from the Ice Age. The author tracked herds for seven years and his observations are richly textured. He describes the goats' lives from birth to adulthood, their feeding habits, unique social behaviour, courtship rituals and long history.
