Tracks in the Wild (Fesler-Lampert Minnesota Heritage)

 
9780816698837: Tracks in the Wild (Fesler-Lampert Minnesota Heritage)

Animal tracks always tell a story. You just have to recognize the signs. As you follow the marks an animal left behind, you get to know it: where it goes, what it likes to eat, when it runs, and why. There are secrets to be learned in those signs in the snow, mysteries to be explored in the mud along the river’s edge.

Tracks in the Wild introduces young naturalists to the tracks of bears, wolves, moose, otters, and other wild animals—thirteen in all. Betsy Bowen’s signature woodcut prints accompany poetic passages about each animal, along with life-size representations of their footprints. As it reveals some of the wonders of the natural world, it will also inspire awe and respect for all the wild, elusive creatures that inhabit Minnesota’s northwoods.

Winner of a 1994 Minnesota Book Award, Tracks in the Wild is perfect reading for a family to share before and after a trek through their own woods.

About the Author:

Betsy Bowen has written and illustrated numerous children’s books, including Great Wolf and the Good Woodsman (Minnesota, 2005); Antler, Bear, Canoe: A Northwoods Alphabet Year; and Big Belching Bog (Minnesota, 2010). She lives in Grand Marais, Minnesota.


From Kirkus Reviews:

The author-illustrator of Antler, Bear, Canoe: A Northwoods Alphabet Year (1991) takes a second look at the forest near her Minnesota home, once again structuring her material creatively to explicate her theme. Presenting 13 animals, roughly in size order from mouse to moose, Bowen represents their footprints in actual size, provides outstandingly handsome portraits (her woodcuts' stark, angular black is overlaid with luminous watercolors of delectable subtlety), and adds brief commentaries on what can be learned by following animals' tracks and observing other evidence of their passing. Scientific names are included, but the well- chosen quotes (from Winnie-the Pooh and the Book of Job as well as several Native Americans)--which underline Bowen's quiet reverence for the animals and what their ways may teach humans- -are not always sourced. Still, a lovely book, intelligently conceived and beautifully executed. (Nonfiction/Picture book. 4+) -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
