Shadows of Night: The Hidden World of a Little Brown Bat

Following a year in the life of a Little Brown Bat, readers will be fascinated to learn how bats give birth, raise their young, fly, hunt with echolocation (catching 600 mosquitoes in an hour!) and gather at bat "conventions" before going into hibernation deep inside caves and emerging in the spring. A fascinating study of a often misunderstood mammal.


"Bash brings her sensitivity to natural history and design to the life cycle of a common North American bat. An artist's eye is apparent in each dramatic spread. Beautiful and informative." Kirkus, pointer review
