A voice emerges from the beaver. Will you really tell the story of my family and my species? The author responds emphatically: Yes, I will.
Journey into the Natural World through fact-based imagination as you talk and travel with the beaver. Follow the seasonal journey of a beaver family residing in the high Colorado Rocky Mountains to learn about the biology, habitat, and behavior of this hardworking, family-oriented mammal. Listen to the words of the animal to understand its role and contributions within the web of life. Whether it is rain-drenched locales or drought-stricken areas, the beaver has become an engineer for Mother Nature that has helped solve many ecosystem problems.
Then venture through Willow Creek and on Fern Ridge Lake to view mammals, birds, fish, butterflies, and native plants in Oregon. Discover the fauna and flora residing in wetland, riparian, and wet-prairie ecosystems of the lower-altitude southern Willamette Valley of the Pacific Northwest. Then reflect on why our Natural World must be respected, protected, and preserved.
Hardcover. Extensive bibliographies. Over 80 full color photographs.
