Mammals of Wisconsin
Foreword by A. W. Schorger
Hartley H.T. Jackson
Foreword by A. W. Schorger

The ecological crisis has underscored the need for books that help man to find a place in his nautral environment. This is such a book.

"There is little doubt that this book will be considered the standard reference work in Wisconsin for generations."
The Science Teacher

Today, it is indeed the standard work in its field— the most comprehensive, useful, and enjoyable mammal guide for the entire North Central States region.

Hartley H. T. Jackson was an esteemed mammalogist over the course of his seventy-five year career, having published more than 900 papers and articles, his first at age 15. After his official retirement in 1951, he at last found time to devote to this work, which as been described both as a "comprehensive scientific treatise" and "a task of dedicated devotion".
