From the dust jacket -

"'This book is for young naturalists who are curious about the winter habits of North American wildlife. When we speak of the north we mean the southern part of Canada and that part of the United States that has a cold winter season. Northern Canada and the Arctic region, we call the far north, and our southern states, the south,' states author Margaret Waring Buck.

Divided into six sections, Insects and Spiders, Fishes, Amphibians, Reptiles, Birds and Mammals, WHERE THEY GO IN WINTER tells what many of these wild creatures do when temperatures drop and plant food is gone.

for instance, the ruby-throated hummingbird of the eastern states flies via the Gulf of Mexico to Central America. Ladybird beetles hibernate in haystacks, fallen leaves, or maybe even in a closet, while bass retire to deeper water and take shelter under rocks or logs. Miss Buck reveals interesting facts about these and other everyday creatures. Her lovely black and white drawings are lifelike in every detail."
