Grade 2-6 One October morning in 1986 a bull moose wandered out of the Vermont woods into a pasture where three beef cattle browsed. Two cows ran off immediately while the third stood her ground. Her reward was, for the next 76 days, the constant and thorough attention bestowed on her by the gentle but confused moose. The saga of the ``love-sick moose'' (as he was to be termed by national and international press) is well told in this photographic essay. The text weaves the natural history of moose into the story of the unusual ``courtship'' between species. It also tells the story of the people who became involved: the visited farmer's support and defense of the wild animal and the human response to the rare event. The text, based on the farmer's log, is supplemented by over 50 quality, full-color photographs. A book that is funny and touching, and full of reverence for nature.
