The Cougar Almanac: An Exploration of the North American Lion

The Cougar Almanac: An Exploration of the North American Lion Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Cougar Almanac is a close-up look at one of the most misunderstood of all the big cats also known as pumas, mountain lions, and panthers. Cougars are not only one of the last of North America's large predators, but also, with the exception of wolves, the most controversial. Elusive and shrouded in myth, the cougar is as fascinating as it is difficult to observe. The Cougar Almanac is the most comprehensive natural history of the cougar ever written, exploring distribution, behavior, biology, habitat, and conservation, with examinations of the near extinct Florida panther and the Eastern cougar, thought to be long ago hunted to extinction. As human development pushes deeper into wilderness, a growing concern about clashes with cougars has become frighteningly real. What will become of our big cat? Only education will offer any hope of understanding how humans and wild animals can coexist in an increasingly shared habitat. The Cougar Almanac is a vital contribution to the literature of the largest wild cat of North America. (7 1/4 X 9 1/2, 164 pages, color photos, b&w photos, maps, charts)
