Whether you're trying to identify the animals that live around your school grounds or wondering what kinds of tracks kangaroos leave behind, this book provides a wealth of information about how to interpret the indirect evidence of a variety of species. This NSTA/CBC Outstanding Science Trade Book for 2009 would be great for browsing, reading, or to occupy a convenient place near your trail or backyard feeding area.

This is not merely a field guide, since each set of tracks is accompanied by information on size, range, habitat, diet, and other important information. High-quality photos and detailed drawings support the text. There is also information for students on how to track and record what they find. It might be used as a manual for student independent research or to inspire a new avocation.
