        As a child, my favorite activity was exploring nature, especially finding animals like frogs, toads, and lizards I kept tropical fish, had a dog, and loved riding horses My love of animals led to a Ph.D degree from U.C Berkley in Zoology In grad school I met and married fellow student Greg Patent Our two sons, David and Jason, were born before we finished school I wanted to use my training and my knowledge, but I also wanted to raise my sons and be there for them when they needed me I decided that writing the kind of books I d always loved reading was a good solution to my dilemma, and that turned out to be true One of my favorite things is learning new stuff, and every time I tackle a new book project I get to indulge myself in that passion I m a lucky gal Fast forward to the present Our sons are grown and have their own families We live in Missoula, MT, where Greg is now a food writer thebakingwizard and a radio personality httpp mtpr look for Food Guys My writing has expanded to other nonfiction topics, especially ones dealing with the Westward Expansion period of U.S history I ve taught writing classes in many venues, visited schools in most U.S states, attended many conferences for teachers and librarians, won a number of awards, and had great travel adventures in pursuit of my subject matter.

    1. Yet another excellent entry in the Scientists in the Field series. Who knew that ospreys could be used to determine the contamination level of toxic metals in a river? But this is what scientists are doing at a Superfund site in Montana. Contamination from nearby mining operations ends up in the water of nearby rivers, which contaminates the fish, which the ospreys eat. The group of scientists here tests the blood and feathers of the ospreys for levels of the toxic metals to determine if the cle [...]


    2. Another outstanding entry in an outstanding series. This time, it's the fascinating work of scientists studying ospreys nesting around superfund sites in Montana. Chock full of information in an engaging narrative and text boxes as well as full-color photos of birds and scientist in action.


    3. This is the lowest score I've ever given a book in the wonderful "Scientists in the Field" title. To my surprise, it is because of the text written by one of my favorite youth nonfiction authors, Patent. Often she uses language that is pretty hard, without defining terms well. There is a glossary but it isn't extensive enough. She talked about complicated chemical procedures in describing a lab experiment that left me at a loss and I assume I know more chemistry than a fifth or sixth grader. The [...]



    4. Another great title in the Scientist in the Field series. Dorothy Hinshaw Patent has been writing nonfiction books for children for many yearsI read her books to my kids when they were small. Her quest to keep learning is encouraging. This book not only tells the story of the life cycle of the osprey, but also the story of how pollution in the environment could potentially impact them, and the people who are studying these beautiful birds. As with other books in this great series, readers get a [...]



    5. Patent and Muñoz take readers to Montana where scientists are studying ospreys, apex predators in the ecosystem there, to figure out the overall health of an area severely damaged by mining pollution in centuries past. Readers are introduced both to those focusing on the study of the birds of prey and how that is done, as well as those who focus on the rivers and dirt in the area and what measures are being taken to remove the pollutants. The combination provides a look at a wide array of peopl [...]


    6. Fascinating and well-researched book about Ospreys in Montana. This book has a strong ecological message and shows how interconnected our world truly is. It is a bit long and would be most appropriate for middle grade children.Part of the Scientists in the Field series, this book is not quite as polished as some of the others, but it is still very interesting and informative. We've read several of the books in this series and they are terrific. We all learn something new when we read these books [...]


    7. I keep a "life list" of birds that I've seen, and my husband and I enjoy treks in the woods to search for new sightings. There is an osprey platform at one of our favorite places where we have watched a pair nesting and seen them feeding their chicks. Scientists have used tools such as banding and web cams to study the habits of these birds. For instance, we know that ospreys mate for life, during migration they can wander many, many miles before they return to their previous nesting place and t [...]


    8. I want to see an elementary teacher use this series as the backbone for a year's science curriculum. As with all the other books in the series, the direct feature of scientists working in the field, and clear writing about specific projects in their work is enough to recommend the book. But the fact that the content is from just a year or two ago? Amazing. With events from 2013 and 2014 documented in a 2015 book this is fabulous series editing. The author and photographer must have felt more lik [...]


    9. The book doesn't just explain the osprey, their lives, and habitat, but goes into a lot of description of the work of scientists at the University of Montana who track and study the birds, as well as their student research assistants and citizen volunteers, including local ranchers and landowners. The reader gets a wonderful sense of the Montana community pulling together to learn more about the species and how it is impacted by mining and other environmental factors. A terrific read for budding [...]


    10. Another excellent entry in the "Scientists in the Field" series, this focuses on osprey, a large fish-eating bird studied in the wild in Montana. Aside from facts about these birds is the companion story concerning the effects of pollution, heavy metals, and pesticides on the osprey. Dramatic full color photos, sidebars, useful back matter, and an engaging text makes for a personal "you are there" tone that draws in the reader.


    11. This was submitted for consideration for the Jefferson cup- but it is a science book and not a history book. That being said, I found parts of it interesting, and other parts dry. I liked learning about the osprey's and how scientists can monitor pollution through the information they gather, but the longer passages about the cause of the pollution- while important- were dry and hard to get through.


    12. I really enjoyed this book and learned a lot about Ospreys that I didn't know before. The book has a good balance of pictures to print making it a book you want to read. It's a great addition to the Scientists in the Field series.



    13. Love the Scientists in the Field Series! This book on the Ospreys was great! Excellent photographs, great sidebars and notes.


    14. Perhaps a little more about the Osprey and a little less about the author Still a part of one of my favorite non-fiction series.
