Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great all-around book  May 18, 2009
This is a great all around field guide. Good pictures and discriptions. Not good if you are trying to start off. Maybe start with Jon Youngs "Animal Tracks And Signs". Really great to have out on the trail though!
 
Great book, very comprehensive  Nov 1, 2008
This book is excellent.

Great sketches.
Great photos.
Excellent information.
I will keep this with me on any outings where I will be tracking unfamiliar quarry or simply interpreting what I come across.

Definitely recommended.
 
A Classic  Sep 3, 2008
The original Peterson's Field Guide to Animal Tracks by Olaus Murie has been an inspiration to generations of trackers, naturalists, and wildlife enthusiasts. It was the first in-depth guide of its kind, and in addition to numerous illustrations of tracks and animal sign, Murie added colorful stories of his own experiences in the great outdoors. The book transcended mere field guide status into the ranks of the classics of natural history.

In the most recent revision of this classic, Mark Elbroch has done an exceptionally tasteful job of updating the guide. He worked to enhance the work of Murie, but keep the essence of the classic work. In particular, Elbroch re-arranged the animal species into phylogenetic order (the order by which animals are related through the course of evolution) allowing for the many advances within the scientific community since the original book was published, and added many color photographs to enhance the illustrations of Murie. As Elbroch notes, the book is still the one Murie wrote; Elbroch simply acted as a caretaker to bring this great book to generations more.

I would recommend this book highly to anyone with an interest in animals or natural history.
 
Peterson's Field Guide to Animal Tracks  Apr 3, 2008
Easy to use and very informative. Many tracks for different areas of the country. I was looking up a set of tracks I found in light snow on my deck and was able to identify them definitely from the images in the book.
 
Too much information  Sep 17, 2007
I purchased this book in hopes of making quick identifications of unknown tracks in the field. Although the book is very thorough, there is no way to sort out the information quickly. It requires too much time to find the track descriptions and sort through all the similar tracks to really be of any practical field use for me.
