Brittle Stars & Mudbugs: An Uncommon Field Guide to Northwest Shorelines & Wetlands

Brittle Stars & Mudbugs: An Uncommon Field Guide to Northwest Shorelines & Wetlands Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Seventy-one entries provide imaginative descriptions of plants, animals, birds, fish, habitats, and natural phenomena of shorelines and wetlands west of the Cascades—from sand dollars in bridesmaids' hues and harpoon-flinging anemones to that lovely harbinger of spring, skunk cabbage. Each entry includes the Latin name of the species, a lovely drawing, and details of appearance, habits, and peculiarities. Lichen is the author of two other field guides in the same series.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Birds that walk underwater. Slugs that mate while suspended in midair. Frogs who star on Hollywood soundtracks. The Pacific Northwest abounds in natural wonders, and here are field guides as interesting as the world they describe. Filled with both amazing and amusing true-life tales about Northwest plants and animals, this new series of uncommon field guides will appeal to the casual observer and the avid naturalist alike. Each of these illustrated books describes more than sixty plants, animals, and natural phenomena of a particular Northwest habitat. Author Patricia Lichen combines standard field guide information about habitat, appearance, and range with delightful and engaging descriptions of the little-known facts, surprising details, and amusing — even bizarre — tidbits rarely found in ordinary field guides. Discover how amazing the Northwest natural world really is with these uncommon field guides.
