Go with Rascal on a Grand Canyon adventure. You will start with newborn Rascal inside the nest. From there it's a big world full of lizards, butterflies, porcupines, deer, nuthatches, wild turkeys, great horned owls and much more. Informative sidebars give information about everything from snags to wildflowers. Written by Sylvester Allred.


Excerpt

A light blanket of snow covers the ground when Rascal crawls from her snug bed to greet the rising winter sun. She scampers down her nest tree. On the ground, the squirrel sniffs until she smells a buried pinecone. She sends snow flying with her busy front paws. Sure enough, there it is. Rascal carries her meal with her teeth until she finds a sunny, sheltered perch where she can eat the seeds.



Professional Reviews

Southwest Books of the Year, 2007
Rascal, a tassel-earde squirrel, is experiencing her first year of life in Grand Canyon National Park. From her first moments in her mother's cozy nest to her forays into the wide world and ultimate independence, Rascal's journeys are one of constant discovery. This lovely book works on so many levels. Sylvester Allred, a biology professor at Northern Arizona University who studies squirrels, tells Rascal's storyin simple language that nontheless manages to evoke the beauty and perils of her environment. Readers wanting more information will appreciate Allred's verbal snapshots, replete with facts about flora and fauna mentioned in Rascal's tale. Diane Iverson's illustrations complement and enhance the story through their realism and pure exquisitness. One could have a thoroughly rich experience just by looking at the pictures! The seasons pass and Rascal comes full circle to build her own nest. It's been a wonderful journey for all.
