Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

A gorgeous and informative photo-essay on North American mountain lions, offering an unprecedented portrait of these elusive animals in their natural habitat. Sumptuous color photos document these animals' entire life cycle, from first breath to growth into formidable hunters. Most of the animals photographed are captive-bred mountain lions living in controlled conditions free from fences and enclosures, permitting the photographer to capture details impossible to see in the wild. Accompanying text provides insight into mountain lions' evolutionary history, diet, hunting, home ranges, and family relationships, as well as relationships with humans and efforts to preserve their habitat. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews@booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Also known as panthers, cougars, and pumas, mountain lions call a vast region home: western Canada, the 12 western US states and Florida, Mexico, and Central and South America. Beautiful and dangerous, these magnificent cats are elusive and notoriously difficult to photograph. Nature photographer Daniel J. Cox takes us deep into the mountain lion's world with this fascinating collection of intimate photographs. Over 100 color photos document these graceful creatures surveying their ranges, nuzzling their cubs, and stalking prey. Writer Rebecca L. Grambo contributes an informative text, offering insight into the mountain lion's behavior, troubled relationship with humans, and struggle for habitat and survival. With more photographs than any other book on the mountain lion, and including rare images of the endangered Florida panther, Mountain Lion presents a unique, up close look at a breathtaking branch of the big cat family.
