Baby Mountain SheepBook - 2007
It is spring in the mountains of Alaska, and a female Dall's sheep is born on the high cliffs, sheltered from predators and the worst of the blowing snow. The lamb has a weak leg, but her heart is strong, and she scrambles over the cliffs after her mother and seeks out the company of other lambs that have also settled in the mountain meadow. Over the short summer months, the lamb will need experience in running up the cliffs when grizzlies and other predators make their way to the meadow. Only then will she be safe from harm as she continues to grow to adulthood in the cold months ahead.
