For a song sparrow that has not migrated south this year, it is a daily challenge to keep warm, as its once plentiful food supply dwindles during a harsh December in Ohio. In Thirteen Moons-a spellbinding wildlife series-Newbery Award-winning author Jean Craighead George has captured thirteen North American animals in their natural environments and chronicled their fight for survival. From the lush Florida Everglades to the snowy Alaskan tundra, this series explores the intricate relationships among animals, plants, and the ever-changing environment in which they live. A favorite of adults and children alike, George's entertaining and educational tales of nature alive and in action-Julie, Shark Beneath the Reef and Julie of the Wolves -have thrilled listeners for a generation. Barbara Caruso's inspired narration captures the drama of survival, and will leave you wondering which is more dangerous-the wild or the family cat.
