In The Natural World, celebrated nature photographer Thomas D. Mangelsen takes the reader on a visual odyssey, from the wildebeest migration on the plains of the Serengeti to the penguins of Antarctica, from the grizzlies of Alaska to the frozen landscape of polar bears on Hudson Bay. Featuring excerpts from his journals detailing his experiences in the field, this book offers an intimate look into the natural world that has inspired artists, conservationists, and adventurers for centuries. With a foreword written by renowned primatologist Dr. Jane Goodall, this book contains Mangelsen s selection of 120 of his most important panoramic images out of a library of more than 20,000. A quiet call to action, an inventory of our planet as it battles climate change, and a celebration of wildness and its intrinsic value, The Natural World is a record of Earth s last great locales, one that will inspire present and future generations with the message that what we have can, and must, be saved.
Author/artist Joan Harris shares inspiring stories, sprinkled with humor and fascinating natural history information in THE LEAST OF THESE. As she did in her award-winning ONE WING'S GIFT: RESCUING ALASKA'S WILD BIRDS, Joan brings these gangly, delicate babies to life on the page in meticulously detailed, Audubon-like drawings. From Hurlly, a fuzzy, so-ugly-it's-cute baby buzzard, to impressive adult birds portrayed in spot art for reference, these drawings (and their accompanying stories) make this book an ideal gift for bird lovers of all ages. Included is an appendix of bird rescue centers and information on what to do if you find a baby bird.
This is a natural history of the wildlife species that call Yellowstone National Park and the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem their home. Illustrated with stunning images by renowned wildlife photographer Thomas Mangelsen, this book describes the lives of species in the park, exploring their habitats from the Grand Tetons to Jackson Hole. From charismatic megafauna like elk, bison, wolves, bighorn sheep, and grizzly bears, to smaller mammals like bats, pikas, beavers, and otters, to some of the 279 species of birds, Johnsgard describes the behaviour of animals throughout the seasons, with sections on what summer and autumn mean to the wildlife of the park, especially with the intrusion of millions of tourists each year. Enhanced by Mangelsens wildlife photography, the book reveals the beauty and complexity of these species intertwined lives and that of Yellowstones greater ecosystem.
