Reviews

"It's a must-have book for those interested in the natural world around them."--Michael Raffety"Mountain Democrat" (09/24/2012)
"A valuable resource for anyone interested in being better able to interpret their natural surroundings."--Bob Welch"Salinas Californian" (01/05/2013)
"This beautifully illustrated field guide, the first devoted to the tracks and signs of California animals--including birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates like spiders and beetles--blends meticulous science with field experience to provide an engaging companion for both armchair exploration and easy field identification. Filled with useful tools for the wildlife expert, and essential background and visual aids for the novice, including in-depth information about the ecology of each species, this book goes beyond basic recognition of types to interpret what animals leave behind as a way of "seeing" how they move through the world. California naturalists will want this book!"-- (07/01/2012)
"This is the type of book you can dip into at any page and find fascinating tidbits."--Sacramento Bee (10/07/2012)
