What animals do visitors usually see in Prince Albert National Park? Deer, elk, red fox, loon, beaver, red squirrel, maybe a black bear if you’re lucky. David Henry’s new book opens up the little known worlds of these animals and gives you answers to questions like these: Who really calls the shots in an elk harem? Why do male loons desert their families in September? What’s so unique about red squirrel moms? How have red foxes evolved to be better mousetraps? How did plains bison find their way back to Prince Albert National Park? The book tells you where to look for animals in the park and includes space for your own field notes. The author’s insights from thousands of hours observing wildlife will increase your pleasure when watching and photographing these animals.
