Acclaimed artist and naturalist Jim Arnosky has created a breathtaking and informative reference on the subject, filled with intricately drawn prints from creatures both wild and domestic, as well as large-scale paintings of the animals in their environment. Best of all, many of the tracks are true to size, so children can compare the trace left by a big-footed polar bear (whose paws act as snowshoes in its icy environment) with that of a small bird.
Adding to the eye-catching illustrations are four gatefolds that display paintings of a bobcat, wolf, deer and a variety of hoofed animals right next to their prints. And the featured menagerie includes bighorn sheep and goats, chipmunks and rabbits, grizzlies and brown bears, horses and burros, domestic cats and dogs and even slithering reptiles!
