Humans have long regarded owls with a mixture of fear and fascination.Since most owls are nocturnal, and many live in remote habitats, they were not well studied until the past two decades.The owl remains a symbol of wisdom; however, the birds' keen senses, hunting ability, and contributions to their ecosystem are equally impressive.Packed with scrupulously accurate information and meticulous watercolor illustrations, "The Book of North American Owls" covers owl classification and history, habitat, life cycle-and the complex relationship between owls and humans.The comprehensive glossary includes all of the twenty-one North American species.

"This is a balanced, entertaining, and informative selection. The second half of the book is a pictorial glossary of owls that highlights each of the 21 species that live on this continent; it includes good range maps, specific behavioral and physical facts, and calls. The attractive drawings, clean format, and generous size contribute to this appealing treat for nature fans." "Clean book design, with large type, lots of white space, and plenty of softly realistic pictures make this both informative and attractive, a good choice for owl-lovers and report-writers alike." "A very attractive offering, intriguing to read and well designed for research." Booklist, ALA "Clean book design, with large type, lots of white space, and plenty of softly realistic pictures make this both informative and attractive, a good choice for owl-lovers and report-writers alike." The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "This is a balanced, entertaining, and informative selection.
