PressestimmenWhile Mares tells of the excitements and frustrations of fieldwork, he also provides much information about desert mammals, and their adaptations to life in an extreme and harsh environment, making the book a pleasant blend of diary and textbook...He describes his work as hard, dangerous but deeply rewarding, with the excitement of new discoveries and unknown places.--Yoram Yom-Tov"Times Literary Supplement" (01/17/2003)
