About this title

Synopsis:

Acclaimed naturalist David M. Carroll guides readers through the yearly cycle of the freshwater turtle. With lyrical yet factual prose observations, Carroll also includes more than 100 of his carefully executed full-color drawings.

From Library Journal:

Carroll, artist and naturalist, has produced an interesting account of the chelonian life of a New Hampshire swamp; he brings obvious pleasure in knowing these creatures to his writing. Precise drawings of the plant and animal life to be found along with the turtles embellish almost every page of the book. The eight color paintings of the snapping, spotted, and painted turtles about which he writes in detail are handsome and give a clear vision of the animals in their native habitat. The writing is lucid and informative, based on a firm foundation of research, and the illustrations are excellent. Recommended.
