Editorial Reviews

A Guide to Natural Areas of Southern Indiana fills a void in available guidebooks geared to nature-based tourism. You would need to do hours and hours of internet research to compile just a small portion of what this one book provides. This is an excellent guidebook and offers a big-picture view of southern Indiana's diverse environments. There is something for everyone-from botany and geology to history-which makes the book extremely useful for both families and ecotour groups as well as the lone explorer seeking out a new experience.
