I have another somewhere that I have not yet read though; it seems more appealing and updated but until I read it I must give this field guide the 5 stars that it deserves.
I've had great fun with this book, an easy to use and clearly illustrated guide to tracks and scat(AKA poop!. it goes beyond just illustrations of tracks and scat (ewww POOP!) and talks about the animals habits and habitats. A book that certainly enriches the experience of walking through the woods on a snowy day! (YUK POOP!)
