Full chapters are devoted to distribution, nutrition and food, diseases and parasites, ecosystem management, hunting, the regulation of hunting, the historical relationship between Native Americans and elk, and much more. The editors, Toweill and Thomas, conclude with a thorough discussion of the future of elk and their management.

The book's original artwork has again been provided by Daniel P. Metz, one of North America's premier wildlife artists.
