Book Review:  Peterson Guide to Animal Tracks
11/22/14

The Peterson Guide to Animal Tracks is a very thorough book on how to track North American animals, mainly mammals.  The authors have a thorough knowledge of the subject matter, and include information and photos on tracking animals in various conditions, including: sand, mud, and snow.  There are beautiful line drawings of animals, as well as photos of animal tracks, and pictures of further signs of animals, like nests and scats.  Some of the more interesting drawings are of different kinds of rabbits, a weasel peeking out of the snow, and a comparison of fox, coyote, and wolf tracks. There is also an introduction and an  extensive bibliography.

Reference:  Olaus J. Murray and Mark Elbroch, A Field Guide to Animal Tracks, third edition (New York: Houghton Mifflin 2005), 391 pages.
