Read full description of the books:



I just love the way Sy Montgomery writes--it's as if you're there with her. This time she's in Mongolia with a father and son team, studying the elusive snow leopard. Montgomery talks about both the rewards and the hardships of this expedition. In some places I had to laugh out loud, as when they set out noose-type traps to catch snow leopards for measurement, study, and release, only to find the next morning that the big cat had been there--and peed all over their traps!! That cat was no fool! Take that! Nic Bishop's photos are awesome, of course. The scenery is barren and rough but also beautiful. They never saw too many snow leopards, but they did come across a few other cute little critters, like that desert hedgehog. I was interested to see how a ger (similar to a yurt) is erected and taken down, and I enjoyed reading about Mongolian customs. Montgomery's comments about collecting animal poop made me chuckle. I can't wait for the next book she writes! I highly recommend this one, and, in fact, the entire Scientists in the Field series of which this book is a part. Fascinating!
