Hardcover. Very Good. Published by the author. Second edition, revised and enlarged. pp 218 pp + ads. Re-bound in modern blue cloth. Tight and unmarked, with minimal wear, but some mild age-toning to the pages. Taylor was among the first white men to take up residence in North Dakota, moving to the territory in the 1860s. After a successful career as a trapper, Taylor's fondness for his prey caused him to renounce his profession and seek protection for beavers. This book includes much information on the beaver habits and habitats, as well as accounts of hunting and trapping in Iowa, Nebraska, and North Dakota, and the history of wildlife protection and game laws.
