Fiona Reid wrote the first comprehensive guide to the mammals of
Central America; she leads tours with an emphasis on mammals, and
she is trained as an artist. She is one of those rare field guide authors who
can do it all herself--authoritative writing as well as stunning illustrations.
This fourth edition of the Peterson Field Guide to Mammals of North
America has been completely rewritten, with all-new range maps and
illustrations for all species. All the mammals of North America north of
Mexico are covered, including those found in near-shore waters. The
most comprehensive, in-depth, and current guide to North American
mammals, this book is the only one to include both paintings and
photographs as well as photographs of animal skulls.
