"The best way to find out if a nature guide is any good is to test it in the field....Our test of Butterflies through Binoculars: The West out in the laboratory of Big Bend National Park proved that it's an exceptionally useful field guide. Those who seek to know the kind of butterfliesflitting over hill and dale will want to own a copy."--Gary Clark, Houston Chronicle
