Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Describes how the Boy Scouts of Jackson, Wyoming, gather antlers every year and auction them off in order to raise money needed to buy food to feed the elk during the lean months of winter when the animals would typically starve to death due to the lack of available grazing land.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5?Each year, the Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, collect antlers shed by the male elk of the nearby National Elk Refuge. This event, which culminates in the Great Antler Auction, serves as a fund raiser for the purchase of feed for the hungry herd during the harsh winter months. The text explains how the human settlement of the frontier has greatly diminished the animals' access to fertile feeding grounds. This disturbance in their natural migratory patterns resulted in mass starvation until the people of Jackson intervened. The Scouts have assumed responsibility for this proud local tradition, volunteering their time to collect, sort, and sell the increasingly valuable antlers. The simple, brief text is highlighted by captioned, full-color photographs depicting both the humans and wildlife. Additional sections are devoted to the potential uses of antlers and to a discussion of the ecological debate surrounding human intervention in the elks' survival. A fascinating account of community/animal partnership.?Rosalyn Pierini, San Luis Obispo City-County Library, CA
