From the massive moose to the miniscule mole, 68 species of Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan mammals are described in vivid detail by mammalogist Roger Powell of Ely, Minnesota. Roger is a Professor Emeritus of North Carolina State University with a broad range of expertise from Black Bears to fishers to weasels. All native (and introduced species) are covered from lynx to Least Chipmunk, from wolf to Woodland Jumping Mouse and from Snowshoe Hare to Short-tailed Shrew. Every page will provide an "aha" moment and an exclamation of "I didn't know that!" You thought you knew our northern mammals...until you read Mammals of the North Woods.
