This identifies, defines, describes, pictures and locates the mammals of North America, north of Mexico, from shrews and moles to whales. Grouped by family and species, with locater maps, the general description of the bats, bears, raccoons, cats, seals, squirrels, mice, beaver, rabbits, porcupines, deer, cattle, etc., is followed by data on habitat, reproduction, habits, economic status and special characteristics (opossum feet, mountain lion tracks). There will be 40 pages of full color drawings, 37 black and white drawings, all by the author who is State Zoologist, New York State Museum and State Science Service. This should be an excellent reference and library item.
