  • Illustrates a year's cycle of the Olympic elk that inhabit the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. Uses maps to locate this primitive area and shows the rugged terrain by following the elk on their month-long trek to and from the summer feeding ground in the high country. The dangers encountered, other wildlife, vegetation of the area, and weather conditions are explained. Concludes with the bugling, collecting of harems and tense battles of the bulls during the mating season.
