Our prairies, plains, and rangelands would be empty landscapes without the supremely adapted pronghorn. In A Pronghorn Year: A Visual Tribute to North America’s Pronghorn, Dick Kettlewell beautifully captures this animal’s amazing speed, eight-power eyesight, and all-season hardiness. More than 100 full-color images—including rare close-ups of newborn fawns—complement the lively, intriguing text, sure to entertain and inform readers of all ages.
