Wild pigs encompass the introduced Eurasian wild boar, feral hogs (wild-living descendants of domestic swine), and hybrids between these two forms. The study of non-native mammals introduced into new areas is essential for the effective management of the ecosystems in which these forms occur, and in this investigation the authors attempt to redress the paucity of information on the characteristics and distribution of the various wild pig populations.

John J. Mayer is a senior research scientist at Westinghouse Savannah River Company. I. Lehr Brisbin, Jr. is a senior research scientist at the Savannah River Ecology Laboratory.Review:
Mayer and Brisbin have written the definitive book on the history, current status, and morphology of wild pigs in this country. It is not designed simply to satisfy idle curiosity. Their work will help biologists to make distinctions that were not usually possible until now.(Audubon)
It is evident that Mayer and Brisbin have meticulously researched the populations described in this book. . . . This book is a notably objective work and is one of the best references available on wild pigs. It represents an ordered, concise history that is easily followed. . . . Anyone needing information on wild pigs should find it a useful reference.(Journal of Wildlife Management)
A mine of information and an entertaining history.(Journal of Natural History)
An important book that will likely become the definitive text on the status and history of wild pigs in the United States . . . Moreover, it stands as one of the finest studies of the invasion of an exotic species and of the interplay between a domestic animal and its feral relatives.(Conservation Biology)
Thorough, well written . . . It should serve as an important reference for professional mammalogists and those employed by federal and state wildlife agencies.(ASB Bulletin)
I am impressed with the scope and detail presented here. . . . This book is a welcomed reference because increasing resource management issues are inevitable for this species.(California Fish and Game)
By all measures, a well researched piece of writing.(Choice)
This book delivers exactly what its title promises.(Journal of Mammalogy)
