Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A whole new way to look at your world: New England, Florida, California, and the Pacific Northwest are the first four subjects in a series of comprehensive field guides to the flora, fauna, landscape, and climate of specific geographic regions of North America.

Up-to-date, concise, accurate species accounts; sensible, user-friendly organization; and extraordinary color photographs and illustrations throughout — all are features of these compact, portable, encyclopedic guides. Each easy-to-carry volume contains:
-- on nearly every page, beautiful and precise color photographs (about 1,500 in all), as well as scores of maps, diagrams, and other illustrations throughout the book
-- an identification field guide to approximately 1,000 local animals and plants, including wildflowers, trees, mushrooms, mosses, fishes, reptiles, amphibians, birds, butterflies, and mammals
-- a clear and thorough explanation of the region's natural history, featuring guides to geology, rocks and minerals, clouds and weather patterns, and the night sky
-- detailed descriptions (seasonal access, travel directions, trail information, and telephone numbers) of 50 of the best natural sites in the area — parks, preserves, beaches, forests, islands, and wildlife sanctuaries — with notes on dozens of others
-- essays addressing issues of conservation, endangered species, and the effects of human habitation

For every resident and every visitor, this series is an indispensable tool for enjoyment and understanding of our natural surroundings. And coming in 1999: the Mid-Atlantic, the Southeast, the Southwest, and the Rocky Mountains.
