From the stunning seascapes of Acadia to the desert of Death Valley, America's national parks are home to hundreds of species of wild mammals. Captured in vivid photographs, both the mammals and the parks are revealed in this breathtaking book written by two leading experts―one a forester and the other a zoologist.

The first section of the book describes the history and landscape of each park, and gives an overview of conservation issues and tips on sighting particular animals. The second section provides a thorough description of each type of mammal, including physical characteristics, behavior, range, and feeding habits. Each entry outlines the environmental issues affecting the populations.

Providing a rare glimpse into the habits and habitats of mammals in all fifty-six national parks, Mammals of the National Parks captures the wonder and beauty of our national treasures.

Review:

Appealing to outdoor enthusiasts and wildlife aficionados alike, this volume combines information about U.S. national parks with material on the animals that inhabit those parks... Color photos throughout make the book delightful to browse.

(Library Journal)

Considering the 212 pages of outstanding color photography and fine writing, the book is a real bargain at $24.95.

(Whit Gibbons Aiken Standard)

Too big to be a practical field guide, this title could nonetheless inspire many readers to head for the outdoors.

(Bloomsbury Review)

Lush in presentation... This is a book for the environmentalist, naturalist and outdoorsman alike.

(Bruce Hampson MotorHome Magazine)

This is a wonderful consolidation of the details about our national park system.

(Wildlife Activist)
