KIRKUS REVIEW

An outdoor book which makes wildwood life more than usually fascinating in its tales, from personal observation and knowledge and the findings of others, of a variety of four-foots. The title character is the raccoon, a slick operator, and then the parade includes the gray squirrel, an exhibitionist, the wise and courageous red fox, the ingenious and acrobatic gray fox, the handsome, freebooter mink, the marine engineer muskrat, the skunk of chemical warfare fame -- and on to the bobcat, the black bear, the whitetail deer, the woodchuck, cottontail rabbit, snowshoe hare, weasel, porcupine and otter. Besides the natural history information on skins, pelts, the dramas and comedy of their lives, their debits and assets to human beings, their characteristics and personalities, there is much of their hunting by gun and camera, so that the overall picture in one of great popular appeal, at adult and juvenile levels.
