The book contains more than 60 color photographs, a dozen historical black and white photographs, and several illustrations. In a dozen chapters, he presents the elk in fine and personal detail, including the amazing minutiae of the elk's life, its adaptation to incredible changes, and what many conservationists have done, over the years, to ensure the elk's well-being. Chapters include notation of the mystique about elk, its habitat requirements, their biology and life flow, as well as insights into what concerned elk enthusiasts have done, and are doing, on behalf of elk. A special chapter outlines the history of the Rocky Mountain Foundation from its inception in the small town of Troy, Montana, to its amazing growth into one of America's largest and most prominent conservation organizations.
