Summary:

"Journey to a place you've never ventured before--beneath a rock pile on a lonely mountain top--and meet the pikas, or rock rabbits. These scurrying, squeaking, industrious, and exceedingly cute mammals make their living harvesting grass and wildflowers during the brief alpine summers. But despite the remoteness of their homes, the pikas' lifestyle and survival are threatened by climate change. Follow the story of pikas, told with lavish photographs and clear prose, and learn how small actions on our part can have global benefits."--
