This handsome volume combines breathtaking full-color photographs with an authoritative, engaging narrative to celebrate the wild cats of North America and examine their natural history and prospects for survival. Wildlife expert and best-selling author Candace Savage presents intimate portraits of three wild felines - the lynx, bobcat, and mountain lion - that live throughout the temperate-zone latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere. In 90 stunning color photographs by many of the world's finest outdoor photographers and in her always lively prose, she crafts an informative and entertaining treatment of these exotic predators: their physical characteristics, diet, and hunting techniques; their relationship with humans; and their present and future survival status in the face of encroachment by civilization. Compassionate and uncompromising,Wild Catsis a stirring tribute as well as a sober reminder that our continuing abuse of natural systems risks the decline or extinction of the world's wild creatures.
