About this book

Deer got your tomatoes? Mockingbirds keeping you up all night? Raccoons learned how to use your cat door? Or maybe you are delighted by the presence of nature in your own backyard and simply want to know the right way to feed hummingbirds. Or maybe you need reassurance about opossums and other things that go bump in the night.

As humans continue to overrun their habitat, these creatures and many others have learned to live with us; the least we can do is reciprocate. In "The Raccoon Next Door", author Gary Bogue has assembled an authoritative insightful, and often very funny body of anecdotes and advice culled from a long and distinguished career in wildlife rehabilitation and journalism. Here is a book that will keep you turning its pages as you discover how much there is to know about urban wildlife, from the tiniest lizard to large predators like coyotes and mountain lions.

Illustrator Chuck Todd's contributions are both dramatic and informative. And if you should ever need to know how to get that skunk smell off your household pets, this is where you'll find the formula.

Media reviews
[Mr. Bogue is] the Ann Landers of California embedded reporter on the front lines of suburban wildlife, [he] helps readers navigate the state's increasingly tempestuous relationship between civilization and wilderness.
- New York Times

"This book is more than a beautifully illustrated field guide. Its down-to-earth approach--it even has a sure-fire recipe to de-skunk the family dog--is full of anecdotal wisdom and engaging urban wildlife lore. It also decidedly comes down on the side of the critters."
- San Francisco Chronicle
