Three books rolled into one… The fabulous animals of the Tibetan plateau are unique in many ways. So is this book! The Snow Leopard’s New Friend is a grand introduction to the charismatic wildlife that has found ingenious ways to survive in this extreme high-altitude terrain—from the highly elusive Snow Leopard to the majestic Black-necked Crane. Featured are ten animal tales, with another dozen cameos by other species. These tales convey an eco-message about the need to live in harmony with nature, not fighting against it.
This work is actually three books rolled into one: the main section comprises ten animal tales, while part two features detailed profiles of the real animals, and part three is a resource section for following up with discussion questions and more. Along the way, you will be drawn into the mesmerizing landscapes of the Tibetan plateau—and drawn into the stark problems these lands face, from climate chaos to mining, deforestation and damming. Tibet expert Michael Buckley draws on his deep background writing about Tibet to portray these wonderful animals—with illustrations, artwork, photographs and cartoons from a variety of contributors that bring them to life on the page.
Written for kids 8 and up, this book can be enjoyed by animal lovers of all ages.
