Editorial Reviews

Review

Over 110 species of mammals roamed the forests, mountains, and deserts of the ancient "Land of Canaan" (Jordan, Israel, Syria, Lebanon, and Palestine). Their impact on humans can be seen in cave drawings made by the Neanderthal inhabitants of northern Palestine some 200,000 years ago and gleaned from the writings of all Near Eastern civilizations. In recent centuries, encroachment by an increasing human population has resulted in the extinction of several species ranging from aurochs (wild ox) to desert gazelles. Mammals Of The Holy Land summarizes the information that is known about the mammals that inhabit this historic land. With keys to identification, a glossary of terms, a basic introduction to the study of mammals, and a discussion of the impact these mammals have had on humans, as well as taxonomic and natural history information for each species, Mammals Of The Holy Land will be useful to the professional biologist and of great interest to the non-specialist general reader with an interest in the wildlife of the middle east. -- Midwest Book Review

If you are interested in a book that shows the skill bones of dead animals then you will like this book. Personally, I was interested in seeing the ANIMALS of the holy land. And I was wanting color photos so I could SEE what those animals look like. What few pictures are included in this book are all in black and white. Sure there's a lot of taxonomical information, but it is very dry, and it is not really laid out in an intuitive fashion. I was looking for a list of species with photos (preferably color photos!) or drawings of both existant and extinct animals that live (or used to live) in the Holy Land. Information about their habitat, living habits, food requirements, and migration patterns (if any) would have been most helpful. Instead I got a book that talks about the differences between the skull bones of different creatures. I've thought about returning it, but I haven't read through a whole lot of it yet, I was so dissapointed with my first glimpse. Maybe it will get better as I dig deeper. I'm afraid not though. This experience underlines why I prefer to buy from a local bookseller rather than Amazon.com when I'm not familiar with the books I'm trying to decide between to begin with.
