9780882893839: Armadillo Book, The

The armadillo, a slow, dull-witted, dirt-eating creature resembling a prehistoric rodent, has firmly established itself in the folklore of the South and Southwest. Despite its lemming-like compulsion for self-destruction, the armadillo survives in large numbers and, as this volume duly records, continues to impose its presence on modern society.

From the Back Cover:

The armadillo, a dull, dirt-eating creature resembling a prehistoric rodent, has firmly established itself in the folklore of Southern and Southwestern states. This strange animal is identified by its tough coat of armor, elongated snout, and propensity for doing battle with eighteen-wheelers on America's highways. Despite its apparent fondness for self-destruction, the armadillo survives in large numbers and, as this endearing book proves, continues to impose its presence on modern society.

Filled with whimsical sketches and humorous captions, The Armadillo Book pays tribute to the beloved, but stubborn animal. From the many armadillo uses, such as fillers for potholes, to the illustrations of armadillos in history, this delightful book depicts the armadillo in a way that Americans have never seen it before.

Illustrator Bill Bryant is a former professor of art and lives in Natchitoches, Louisiana, where he regularly observes and documents the antics of this hapless creature.
