Every animal leaves some kind of trace as it passes and the art of tracking is very much like learning to read. If you learn to read the signs left by footprints, leftover food, droppings and scrapes in the earth you will soon be able to tell the story of an animal's life, packed with fascinating details and hidden meanings This new book shows readers how to find and interpret the evidence that animals leave behind, from a footprint, a bent blade of grass, a soil disturbance or a chewed nut or leaf. Combined with other signs, tracks and trails they will soon be able to build a profile of a huge range of creatures. Readers will not only learn the difference between a poo and a pellet; but will be able to spot the differences between pellets regurgitated by a variety of bird species. Written by popular nature presenter, Nick Baker, and beautifully designed and illustrated, the book is a brand new approach to the curious science of nature tracking.
