Packed-full of information and excellently illustrated throughout with highly illuminating photographs, this is a serious guide to tracking wildlife. Steve Backshall gives clear advice about how to look for the clues that tell us the story of life in the wild whether they are from familiar badgers or the more exotic bald eagles or the giant black caiman. From the relative peace and calm of Ancient Woodlands to the extreme climates of the Arctic Circle and the African Savanna Deadly Detectives takes readers into the heart of nature ~ Julia Eccelshare

Synopsis

Deadly Detectives Top Tips to Track Wildlife by Steve Backshall

Finding wildlife is rarely easy - unless you're Steve Backshall! In Deadly Detectives Steve tells young trackers everything they need to know about the origins of tracking, what you need to become a tracker and how to do it, whether the wild world is your own back garden, ancient woodlands, the riverside or coast. He illustrates his tips with examples of his own detective work on land and in the water from tropical rainforests to the African Savanna, from the Arctic tundra to the desert. Join him as footsteps, feeding habits and even a pile of pooh reveal snow leopards, crocodiles, gators, snakes and polar bears, while closer to home you can track foxes, squirrels, badgers and birds, using exactly the same techniques.

Reviews

The enthusiasm and expertise he has for his subject ... is evident in this excellent book School Librarian Plenty to inform and entertain BBC Wildlife

About the Author

Steve Backshall

Steve Backshall is the hugely popular and fearless presenter of the BBC kids' series DEADLY 60 and LIVE AND DEADLY; his eventful life is well documented and he recently hit the headlines after being bitten by a Caiman live on camera! Steve travels the world to learn about the most inspiring predators, from boxing mantis shrimp to charging tigers. Steve also regularly writes articles for newspapers and magazines including the NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC TRAVELER and BBC WILDLIFE and is an inspirational public speaker.

Steve says: "Though I seem to have found myself unwittingly lost in the world of wildlife television, I always wanted to be a writer. As a child it was Gerald Durrell, Jack London and Willard Price who inspired me, and I'm elated that Orion have given me the opportunity to follow in their more illustrious footsteps. I have so many incredible adventures, tall tales and animal anecdotes from my lifetime travelling the world, having been to a hundred countries in every conceivable environment. Over the next few years with the help of all the fine folk at Orion, I look forward to sharing these stories with a world of (hopefully) willing readers."
