Peterborough - Sy Montgomery is back .... with Hyenas!

SY MONTGOMERY returns with her latest book in the Scientists In The Field series for young readers. THE HYENA  SCIENTIST  ,timely and inspiring,  sets the record straight about one of history's most hated and misunderstood mammals, while featuring the groundbreaking, pioneering research of a female scientist in a predominately male field. As a scientist studying one of the only mammalian societies led entirely by females, zoologist Kay Holecamp has made it her life's work to understand hyenas, the fascinating, complex creatures that are playful, social, and highly intelligent--almost nothing like the mangy monsters of pop culture lore. Full color photos throughout make this an appealing book for young readers (and adults!).

And look for two more books coming this fall! See below. We are happy to reserve copies for you now.
