HASH(0x9477be7c) von 5 Sternen An outstanding and highly recommended book 17. September 2009
Von Lita Judge - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Sy Montgomery and Nic Bishop have produced a beautiful book about an expedition with scientists who study and protect snow leopards in Mongolia. Nic Bishop's photographs take us along on the expedition. They capture the generous nature of the people and Mongolia's vast sense of scale -- a scale that makes you realize that there are very few snow leopards out there. Sy Montgomery's text drives the story. It brings out the excitement, the suspense, the frustrations, the challenges, and the perseverance of the scientists. Much of scientific research is like chasing a ghost -- elusive. This is well reflected in this outstanding and highly recommended book.

HASH(0x94785270) von 5 Sternen An On the Spot Book 12. Januar 2011
Von Spudman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
What did the hunter do when he saw a leopard?
He shot him on the spot.

It's an old joke, not that good, and not applicable when talking about the snow leopard, an animal about whom our knowledge is sketchy. This collaborative effort by Sy Montgomery and Nic Bishop takes them to remote reaches of Mongolia, the Gobi Desert and the barren mountain habitat of snow leopard and ibex.

The expedition of a few hardy souls unfortunately experiences few snow leopard sightings, mostly near misses, pings of tracking devices, and scat, lots and lots of scat. It's all part of a group effort to preserve the numbers of snow leopards that still exist, monitor their numbers, and to convince Mongolians of the importance of the snow leopard's survival.

For the middle school reader this is a book to fascinate, to motivate, to inspire. A motivated reader will eagerly soak up the content of this richly endowed book. The reluctant reader may be motivated by the breathtaking photos and the incredible descriptions of a remote and exotic land. Reading about and seeing photos of a ger (a Mongolian dwelling) being constructed is worth the price of admission alone.

There's much to be learned from this book, so many topics explored: nature, environment, biology,zoology, geography, history, sociology, and on and on.

As an adult reader I was left with an appetite for more, as if I'd just eaten a Lean Cuisine frozen meal. Tasty but not quite enough. A younger reader should find Saving the Ghost of the Mountain very satisfying and thoroughly enjoyable.

HASH(0x9477981c) von 5 Sternen Wonderful travelogue and overview of biology field work, but not many photos of actual snow leopards. 14. März 2015
Von C. Frederick - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a travelogue of a Western biologist and conservationist in Mongolia trying to track highly elusive and rare snow leopards. Despite its target age of 4-8th graders and the arresting cover image, there are very very few images of snow leopards in this book - either a 3/4 image of the head and shoulder, or a small snapshot of the researcher with a tranquilized leopard. The focus is on the research process, people, culture, terrain. The back cover of the book is much more a reflection of the focus. So, it was a bit disappointing for my 2nd grade child who adores this animal. The reality is, snow leopards are rare and hard to track. The book reflects this. It's a reality check. But if you are seeking a picture book of snow leopards so you can really see what they look like, their proportions, what their cubs look like, how they hunt or feed or socialize... this is not your book. I checked out http://www.amazon.com/Explore-My-World-Snow-Leopards/dp/1426317034/ref=lh_ni_t?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER which has many more photos and more of an overview of snow leopards in general... but much less challenging text and not as much of a conservation message.
