In the Wolong Preserve in China, the mountains are hidden
in mist. A giant panda searches for food, but the bamboo he likes to
eat has flowered this year and is now dry and brittle. The panda must
find a new home range where he can find bamboo to eat.
"While following a
young Panda as he searches for his own home range that will provide him
with shelter and an abundant source of food, readers are introduced to
the flora and fauna of the beautiful bamboo forests of China. The story
is full of accurate information about the delicate balance of the bamboo
forest, the animals there, and many behavioral characteristics of
pandas. Author Ann Nagda, a conservationist who has recently visited the
Wolong Preserve, weaves a wonderfully warm tale. . .Individuals or
groups studying ecology/ecosystems, habitats, pandas, and China will
find this a useful resource."
