Patrick Benson’s bio

Snow Leopard: Ghost of the Mountains

author: Justin Anderson
illustrator: Patrick Benson

The people who live among the high peaks of the Himalayas tell stories of a mysterious animal called the gray ghost. To see one, youd have to be very lucky indeed. Join a zoologist in the Himalayan mountains as he searches for the elusive creature. With her pale gold and silver-gray coat painted with black rosettes, she blends so well into the boulders, its no wonder shes thought of as a ghost of the mountains. But the fortunate few who spot her are rewarded with a sight they will never forget. Written by an expert with firsthand experience, beautifully illustrated, and interwoven with fascinating facts, this vicarious look at a breathtaking animal includes an end note suggesting resources to explore.

Look! A line of paw prints in the snow. Follow the tracks to see the rare and utterly majestic snow leopard and visit her secret world.
