The mighty grizzly, stately wolf, stealthy mountain lion and seldom-seen "ghost predators" like the bobcat, lynx and wolverine, fisher, marten and ermine, are all legendary animals that prowl the backcountry of Montana, Idaho and Wyoming, Utah, New Mexico, Arizona and British Columbia. In this book author Mike Lapinski provides first-hand accounts and amazing photos that catch these secretive animals in action. Casting aside common biological misconceptions, Lapinski conveys the surprising fragility and resilience of life in the wild. An expert on wilderness habitats and wildlife, the author includes information on species descriptions, habitats, mating and population - plus a unique perspective on where humans fit into the predators' cycle of nature. He also provides solid information about seldom-written-about predators of the Southern Rockies, including the jaguar, the ocelot, the jaguarundi and the margay. 6x9-inch format, 17 chapters and a conclusion.
