This unconventional wildlife guide and concise environ­mental history of the Big Apple includes tales of the well-known, notorious, and legendary creatures who are as much New Yorkers as their human counterparts.

A celebration of some of the city’s most surpris­ing residents and a love letter to this always evolv­ing metropolis, Wild City is an enchanting illustrated volume that is a must-have for every Big Apple devotee and animal lover.
