The most comprehensive field guide available to North American mammals–a must-have for any enthusiast’s day pack or home library–from the go-to reference source for over 18 million nature lovers.

From a stop-action photograph of the amazing flying squirrel to Big Horn Sheep perched on a rock face, this guide puts the world of mammals in your hands. Illustrated with more than 300 full-color photographs, each species account includes information on physical characteristics, size, similar species, breeding, tracks and other signs, habitat, and range, as well as commentary on feeding, nesting, and other behaviors. Easy-to-read range maps, detailed anatomical illustrations of different mammals, track illustrations, and a state-by-state location guide make this the decisive authority on North American mammals.Consider the lynx, a medium-sized cat of boreal regions of North America, “a solitary animal, associated with the opposite sex only during mating.” Consider the Oldfield mouse, Peromyscus polionotus, once abundant in abandoned fields and beaches from South Carolina to northern Florida. These are but two of the 390 species covered in this densely informative, well-illustrated guidebook to the mammals of North America, with photographs keyed to textual descriptions that cover a given animal’s physical features, range and habitat, breeding characteristics, and behavior (and, helpfully, that list other animals with which it might be confused). This easy-to-use handbook makes a superb addition to any naturalist’s library. –Gregory McNamee

Invaluable tool, even if you have cell phone signal The final authority on field books. I took this and the rest of the set on a 31 day extreme-survival-adventure and the heavy page material held up well.***Easy to read, easy to navigate, impossible to pick up and not learn something, every time you open it*** 6 stars if possible

Couldn’t get much better… …and still fit in my backpack with the other four field guides that I carried “into the wild”! I have the 1997 printing of this guide, with the gold vinyl cover. It measures 4″ by 7.5″ by 1.5″, and consists of more than 900 pages of photos, drawings, maps and text; all I needed to identify all the mammalian species that I encountered during a part-time, two-year volunteer program with an environmental watch group. Combined with the National Geographic “Field Guide to the Birds of North…
