The book covers the 19 species occurring in prairie, aspen parkland, mixed forest, boreal forest, and tundra habitats of Manitoba, Canada. Chapters are entitled: ecology, life history, activity, distribution past and present, tiger beetles as predators and prey, observing tiger beetles, conservation status, historical quotations by scientists, tiger beetles as models for artists, and five pages of references. The book is richly supplied with large-scale images of the beetles and their habitats, 24 electron-microscope images (x 60 to 1800) detailing the morphology of several species, and images of artists' renditions of tiger beetles (e.g., belt buckle).
