Wild panda populations remain in only a few mountain ranges in central China, and their natural environment is shrinking as humans bring about environmental changes. This book is part of an ongoing effort, supported through major funding and initiatives by the Smithsonian, to educate the public about the giant pandas and the world in which they live. The authors, who are affiliated with the Smithsonian National Zoological Park in Washington, DC, visited panda reserves in China to observe the animals in their natural habitat. Their book traces the natural and cultural history of the panda and its interactions with humans and discusses the challenges to conservation and preservation posed by the species. It also notes the political aspects that are part of any conservation effort. The authors feel that a bright future for pandas is possible but that much remains to be done. The book is enhanced with over 170 full-color photographs of giant pandas and the habitat they share with other wild creatures. Recommended for public libraries where there is interest in wildlife and conservation. Deborah Emerson, Rochester Regional Lib. Council, Fairport, NY
