Review:

A completely authoritative scholarly guide to the biology of a group of organisms and... a completely readable, fully illustrated, and fascinating introduction for the general public.

Got squirrels? This book has answers. This is not a children's book... read it with an adult. Fun for all ages.

Only a master at both scholarship and communication could pull this off as eloquently and clearly as Thorington and Ferrell have done.

(Francis Petter Mammalia)

A delightful read, well written, well organized, and well illustrated. This is the only such account of the entire family of Sciuridae. As one who has spent most of his career studying squirrels, I was quite surprised at how much I don't know and how much I learned from this book! Thorington and Ferrell have pulled off an extremely thorough account that will be of tremendous interest to the general public and many scientists alike.
