Are you among the millions of people whose only opportunity to observe wildlife comes after it has been run over and pressed into a patty by big rigs, then desiccated by the elements until even flies don't recognize it? This is the field guide for you! FLATTENED FAUNA fills an important gap in our natural history knowledge and fosters a heightened respect for the ecology of the paved environment.Reviews“Knutson. . . might just be to roadkill what Brett Favre is to football flinging.”—Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Is this book a joke or a serious study? I'm not sure. Regardless, it's filled with interesting tidbits about the life and habits of many common animals (frequently pests) around the country. Nature study or morbid joke? I think they're serious -- you be the judge. Read full review
