All across the prairie thousands of prairie dogs duck in and out of burrows, call warnings to one another, and forage for food. Working together to survive, they help sustain the broad spectrum of prairie life. In this clearly written, boldly illustrated introduction to a fascinating species, the author and illustrator examine the prairie dog’s life cycle, burrowing system, and impact on the prairie. They also explore the prairie dog’s relationship with people--and invite readers to consider what lies ahead for a species considered essential in an endangered environment.
