America's national parks are home to some of nature's great wildlife spectacles. Here, Gary W. Vequist and Daniel S. Licht, focus on twelve animals that have been imperilled and at risk, but are now protected within the National Park System. Showcasing one species for each month of the year, including gray wolf, black bear, prairie dog, sea turtle, bison, bats, salmon, elk, beaver, American alligator, gray whale, and bald eagle, Vequist and Licht pair each premier species with a featured park, adding information about other animals to look for in the same habitat. Beyond being a guide to observing these remarkable animals, this book also aims to remind Americans why national parks are truly our "best idea" and encouraging readers to go find out why. Nature lovers, travellers, and outdoor hobbyists of all types will be enthralled by this inside view of America's wildlife and the breathtaking photographs of places they inhabit.
