When humans wrote the history of North America, they arrogantly and fraudulently gave themselves the credit for its development while completely ignoring the contributions of the North American moose. To correct this unfortunate, if not deliberate, oversight, this groundbreaking book documents the contributions of the magnificent, majestic, monstrous moose to North America’s history. From the role of the moose in the creation of North America to its current status as an iconic animal, Frances and Walter Griggs show how the moose influenced the growth and development of North America. After reading A Moose’s History of North America, you will have a newfound respect for, and understanding of, the moose; and why North America is a better place because the moose has left its hoof prints on the eternal sands of time.
