239 pp. Green cloth with gold imprint. Slight wear on dust jacket. Near Fine Condition. The first book that does not anthropomorphize animals, but follows their interconnected lives in nature. Set along Cottonwood Creek and the Snake River. A natural science classic. The setting is an actual marsh in the stunning valley of the Tetons, and every creature mentioned, every plant, can be seen by anyone visiting Jackson Hole. In the background are the lively movements of more than fifty minor characters. The principals, each the subject of a different instinct, are an otter, cutthroat trout, osprey, mosquito, and scud, a mink, varying hare, merganser, moose, leech, leopard frog, and snail, trumpeter swan and an beaver.
