Top 1000 review from Amazon.com's website: Reviewer: hansenfam1@earthlink.net from ventura, california USA Seriously, Mr. Mc Dougall has put together an informative book about the art of tracking. I gave this book to my wildlife biologist husband and he gave it a thumb's up which is worthy of 5 stars. For a lay person such as myself, I have learned so much from the handy, transportable book. We spend alot of time outdoors, and I enjoy pulling out our various compact resource books to enhance the experience. This book is appropriate for all levels of tracker interest and certainly goes into more information than simply identifying scat. The book offers at least 80 drawings to assist in track identification of approximately 45 species of wildlife. You will gain knowledge as to age of scat (when was the animal here) terraine conditions, habit details, behavior, and potential for danger to humans. The guide is perfect for hiker, hunter and nature enthusiast. This is a great time of year (summer vacation) to promote more than campfire s'mores..bring this book along with you on your next outdoor adventure and spark true appreciation for what surrounds you. (and what you unknowingly trample on!) --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
