DESCRIPTION North America’s Amazing Mammals: An Encyclopedia for the Whole Family, by popular nature writer Lochlainn Seabrook, is the ultimate family-friendly reference on our fur-bearing cousins. Scientific, topical, and up-to-date, this 424 page, fact-filled, vintage-styled wildlife book covers an impressive 378 of our region’s most fascinating and common mammals from the following groups: Artiodactyla, Carnivora, Cetacea, Chiroptera, Cingulata, Eulipotyphla, Hominidae, Lagomorpha, Marsupialia, Perissodactyla, Pinnipedia, Rodentia, and Sirenia. An easy-to-use compendium, it does away with the often tedious and unnecessarily graphic biological descriptions typically found in traditional guidebooks and instead focuses on the simplified ecology and life history of each species, thoroughly covering such basic but vital topics as size, coloration, habitat, range, diet, communication, behavior, reproduction, predators, and life span. The only known animal encyclopedia to include Sasquatch, along with its 378 species entries, North America’s Amazing Mammals contains some 600 black and white old school illustrations, information on mammalian taxonomy, tips on how to safely and enjoyably interact with wild mammals, a discussion on the native/nonnative status of wild horses, tables of endangered mammals and threats to mammals, an inventory of useful governmental Websites, a section for maintaining a life list, a massive and detailed glossary, a comprehensive index, an extensive 800-book bibliography, and an informative and thoughtful introduction by the author on the vital roles mammals play in the world ecosystem and human society. Dedicated to increasing awareness of our region’s mammals and wilderness preservation, North America’s Amazing Mammals is the product of a half-century of firsthand knowledge, personal experience, and exhaustive research. A sweeping intricate work that rigorously examines 83 percent of the total species in our region, it is the only reference book of its kind, one that will be appreciated by everyone from mammalophiles, campers, hikers, and tourists, to hunters, wildlife conservationists, zoologists, and field biologists. Available in paperback and hardcover. A former zoo keeper, ranch hand, and hunting guide, Lochlainn Seabrook is an award-winning writer-naturalist, historian, and outdoor photographer. One of the world’s most prolific and multifaceted writers, his catalog ranges in scope from science and nature to history and religion. He is the author of the international bestseller, The Concise Book of Owls: A Guide to Nature’s Most Mysterious Birds (endorsed by the World Bird Sanctuary, St. Louis, MO), as well as The Concise Book of Tigers: A Guide to Nature’s Most Remarkable Cats.
