Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: A young tule elk grows up to become the master of his herd and defends it from the attack of a mountain lion. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
Inhaltsangabe: The author and the illustrator of Voices of the Wild once again pay tribute to America's disappearing wildlife with a fascinating look at two once-common species--the elk and the mountain lion. Dramatic storytelling and breathtaking illustrations bring to life the experience of what it takes to be a true leader. Full color.
From Publishers Weekly:
This wilderness tale begins and ends with a mountain lion stalking a herd of elk. Through his mother's protection, a baby elk survives the mountain lion's first attack. Years later, after he has grown into the dominant bull, Master Elk recognizes the lion's sudden scent, warns his herd and delivers them to a marshy refuge. The precise, tactile poetry that characterizes London's best work (The Eyes of Gray Wolf; Condor's Egg) loses some force here, partly because McLoughlin's illustrations, dominating each spread, sap rather than empower the story. Disregarding dramatic cues in the text, the artist favors simplified compositions that convey no sense of the varying landscapes (from tule marsh to sheer cliffs) nor of the potential violence and danger. Still, as a realistic narrative featuring endangered and wild species, this volume may merit attention from eco-minded parents. Ages 4-8.
