Learn about why fishers aren't cats and ermine aren't evil.  Instead, these animals and other relatives, including mink, marten, otter, wolverine and badger belong to the largest and most diverse order of carnivores on Planet Earth.  From the treetops to subterrainian burrows, in both fresh and salt water habitats, thes remarkable animals are bold, bright and determined wildlife neighbors.  They deserve our respect and conservation committment.  Susan Morse's amazing photography, personal stories and discoveries, as well as lots of tracking lore, are sure to fascinate the audience, including the youngest naturalists.  Entire families will love learning what these often misunderstood animals are really all about!
