Scats and Tracks of the Great Plains provides accounts of the scats, tracks, and other signs of 70 species, including 5 species of amphibians, 5 species of reptiles, 23 bird species, and 37 species of mammals. In some instances, accounts focus on a group of similar species. For example, all snakes are covered in one account. The author limited the book's geographic scope and number of species covered to keep the material manageable and for easy use in the field.
