Great book. Well laid out and lots of good ...
on 16 October 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
Great book. Well laid out and lots of good info. As a herpetologist my mammal knowledge is OK but I run into weird species sometimes ("what kind of weasel was that???") that I don't know and just want a good overview off/ID. It would also make a great Xmas present for family.

Was hoping the photos would be as grand as the information in the book...not the case.

Excellent Resource/Beautiful photos
on 19 January 2011 - Published on Amazon.com
This is one of few textbooks I saved after the class ended. It's very complete with all pertinant information about each animal. The photographs are wonderful, I got distracted from what I was looking for many times just flipping through and looking at the gorgeous full page photos. I can't recommend this highly enough! Even if you don't need it as a resource, what a beautiful coffee-table book!

Great reference with photos
on 10 July 2010 - Published on Amazon.com
This has been fun to look up some of the animals we see from time to time. This is a great encyclopedia type book. If you love to know details and habits of North American Mammals and see a good photo you will love this book.

A complete, high-quality reference.
on 26 January 2000 - Published on Amazon.com
This book was indeed a welcome and valuable addition to our high school library. It provides an interesting and comprehensive commentary on each mammal, including such topics as the special features or habits, the risks to the animal in today's world, efforts being made for its protection, descriptions of typical dens or living quarters, social group characteristics, food preferences and hunting, etc. Each article is signed and then followed by a summary such as would be found in a field guide (size, common names, references, etc.). Includes indexes by both common and scientific names, a glossary, bibliography, and photography credits.
