For a generation, the Basic Illustrated series has been as much a part of the outdoors experience as backpacks and hiking boots. Information-packed tools for the novice or handy references for the veteran, these volumes distill years of knowledge into affordable and portable books. Whether you're planning a trip or thumbing for facts in the field, Basic Illustrated books tell you what you need to know. Use Basic Illustrated Animal Tracks to discover how to identify animal tracks, read other animal signs, make plaster casts and tracings, practice observation techniques, participate in conservation projects and more.
Award-winning authors and naturalists, Roseann and Johnathan Hanson have worked as a team for over twenty years, exploring and writing about the wilds of North America from the Arctic to Baja, California. Jonathan is a correspondent for Outside magazine, and he and Roseann teach animal-tracking courses for nonprofit conservation groups. They live in Tucson, Arizona.
