About the Author:

Sally Carrighar (1898-1985) was one of the most respected naturalists of her time. Awarded a Guggenheim fellowship for fieldwork in the Arctic, she traveled far and wide from her native Ohio. Carrighar was the author of ten books and also wrote extensively for movies and radio throughout the twenties and thirties.

David Rains Wallace has published over a dozen books on natural history and conservation, most recently the Official National Park Handbook for Yelllowstone. His third book, The Klamath Knot, won the John Burroughs Medal for Literature in 1984.

Carl Dennis Buell is an illustrator and naturalist whose work has been featured in museums and zoos throughout the country, as well as in numerous national magazines. He has been clawed, pecked, or bitten by most of the species of wildlife featured in this book.

Review:

''One Day on Beetle Rock is a book of rare distinction, at once a record of objective facts, of deep feeling without sentimentality, and intense and subtle perception expressed in beauty.''--New York Times Book Review (December 1944)

''Not a leaf-turn, not a shadow, not a footfall or a wingflash has escaped her. One can almost follow 'the scents that lay like vines across the forest floor.' The scene is tranquil but the pace is fast.'' --The Atlantic (February 1945)
