Item description for A Natural History of Raccoons by Dorcas MacClintock...

Originally published in 1981, A Natural History of Raccoons is a thorough study of the characteristics and habits of one of the most fascinating creatures among our country's wildlife. Topics covered include: behavioral characteristics (curiosity, raccoons in motion, winter denning); feeding habits, controlling their numbers (disease, parasites and predators); mating and cubs; and habitat requirements.

The book includes a chapter on caring for raccoons, which will be especially helpful for those -- like the author -- have been called upon to nurture and orphaned raccoon cub.

Raccoons are ecological opportunists of the first order, living in forest, upland marsh and coastal environments, and forever exploring new habitats in suburb and city. Many people who have only occasionally glimpsed these predominantly nocturnal creatures will welcome this opportunity to become more familiar with them.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Natural History of Raccoons?

Delightful Book  May 16, 2008
This is a delightful read. Anyone who has raccoons in their lives (or garbage cans) will gain a greater appreciation (and possible love) for these critters through Dorcas MacClintock's right-to-the-heart writing.
I loved the drawings, some made me laugh as raccoon antics were masterfully illustrated.
This book is a treasure...
Astonishingly detailed  May 28, 2006
This book provides more detailed information about raccoons than any other I have read. MacClintock seems to know an astonishing amount about these wonderful creatures, and she shares her knowledge in prose that is clear and insightful. My only regret is that the book offers drawings rather than photographs; the drawings are good, but photos would have made this book perfect.
