In Creatures of Change, Carolyn V. Platt examines two hundred years of wildlife in Ohio. Most of these chapters first appeared in Timeline, a publication of the Ohio Historical Society. Over 150 color photos by Gary Meszaros complement the text. Written in an accessible style, the book will appeal to anyone with an interest in Ohio's wildlife, but it will also be a valuable reference for specialists.
Carolyn V. Platt recently retired as professor of English at Cuyahoga Community College in Cleveland. She is author of Creatures of Change: An Album of Ohio Animals (Kent State University Press, 1998) and Birds of the Lake Erie Region (Kent State University Press, 2001). As a member of the U.S. House of Representatives for Ohio's 14th District, John F. Seiberling was part of a bipartisan congressional effort to create a national park in the Cuyahoga Valley
