This collection of twenty wild-animal stories will delight readers of all ages. Each tale shows the point of view of one particular wild animal, describing his natural environment, the characteristics of his species, and recounting his daily pursuits and adventures. There are accounts of Ivan, the black bear; Fel, the mountain lion; Lutra, the otter; Orca, the killer whale; Wapiti, the bull elk; Hush Wing, the great horned owl; and many others.

The author's detailed knowledge of animal life provides each story with its individual distinguishing quality - and where science leaves off, the author's imagination takes over with admirable dexterity.

Complete in themselves, the stories stand together with remarkable cohesiveness. Treated with great sympathy, the animals are involved primarily in the struggle for survival, a struggle heavily charged with the excitement of the hunt.

About the Author:

Outdoorsman and amateur naturalist, Chet Scharzkopf lived for twenty-five years, "between wars," in California's northern Redwood Empire where he gathered material for the stories in this book. A native of San Francisco, he was a power-plant and marine engineer by vocation but operated in real estate and wrote for the newspapers and periodicals by avocation.
