Both the mountains and northern forests of British Columbia are magical kingdoms shaped by cold and snow. They also form the landscape that covers most of the province and that offers countless spectacular destinations for campers, hikers and other outdoor enthusiasts. Adapted and expanded from sections of the best-selling British Columbia: A Natural History which won the 1997 Bill Duthie Bookseller's Choice Award, this first book in the British Columbia Natural History Series offers a spellbinding exploration of these two regions. Filled with fascinating stories about plant and animal life in these regions, this book tells us how bumblebees adapt to the cold, why young ravens share their booty whereas adults greedily gobble all they can by themselves, and why lemmings and Snowshoe Hares are abundant one year and scarce the next.
