Phantom of the Prairie: Year of the Black-footed Ferret

Written by Jonathan London

It is spring on the high prairie and deep within an abandoned prairie dog burrow, four black-footed ferret kits are born. In this world of waving grasses a delicate and complex web of predators and prey live out their lives. Readers get a rare glimpse of the mysterious black-footed ferret, the most endangered mammal in North America, as they share Phantom's adventures through a full cycle of seasons.


"Bash's vibrant artwork convey much information about the life cycle and habits of this rarest of North American mammals. They also emphasize the interrelationships among other species in the high prairie ecosystem. This makes a fine introduction for primary science units. " Booklist
