Despite this books small size it is full of great information.Published by Canadian publisher Lone Pine who are known for their accessible field guides. Writer and artist Ian Sheldon has done a number of books for Lone Pine.
If you are looking for an in-depth behavioural guide to a number of animals then this is not the book for you.
Where it does excel is when trying to identify tracks while walking through the woods. It’s small size is perfect for your pocket and the handy ruler on the back cover makes it extremely useful.
I keep this book in my coat pocket along with my blackberry so I can identify and record the tracks that I see. It gives me enough information to reference in the field. I can then bring that information home to find out more about the animals tracks I have just seen. And I don’t have to carry a heavy tome of a book to do it.
