Editorial Reviews

"Prayer answered! Six hundred twenty-five color photographs of butterflies in the wild! Color range maps....Descriptions! Timelines of peak flight abundance! And a quirky author's voice throughout that communicates Glassberg's infectious love of his subject...more than a field guide: it's afield companion. "--Bird Watcher's Digest
