Publisher Comments:

School Library Journal Best Book of 2009
A NSTA/CBS Outstanding Science Trade Book for 2010
2009 Booklists's editors' list of the Top 10 Environmental Titles for Youth
 
With a dazzling as-it-happens narrative and spectacular photographs, readers, young and old, will be fascinated as they discover why these mysterious cats are called ghosts of the mountain. Readers will also be stunned by how much perseverance it takes to research and protect this endangered, little-understood species.
 

Synopsis:

An amazing scientific journey through Mongolia in search of elusive snow leopards as told by the bestselling nonfiction author and photographer team of Sy Montgomery and Nic Bishop. A can't miss addition to the paperback collection of Scientist in the Field titles.

Synopsis:

Yellow blood, silk of steel, skeletons on the outside! These amazing attributes dont belong to comic book characters or alien life forms, but to Earths biggest and hairiest spiders: tarantulas. Here you are invited to follow Sam Marshall, spider scientist extraordinaire (hes never been bitten), as he explores the dense rainforest of French Guiana, knocking on the doors of tarantula burrows, trying to get a closer look at these incredible creatures. Youll also visit the largest comparative spider laboratory in America—where close to five hundred live tarantulas sit in towers of stacked shoeboxes and plastic containers, waiting for their turn to dazzle and astound the scientists who study them.

Synopsis:

It looks like a bear, but isnt one. It climbs trees as easily as a monkey— but isnt a monkey, either. It has a belly pocket like a kangaroo, but whats a kangaroo doing up a tree? Meet the amazing Matschies tree kangaroo, who makes its home in the ancient trees of Papua New Guineas cloud forest. And meet the amazing scientists who track these elusive animals.

Synopsis:
