Media reviews

"This easy to use field guide contains all the details you'll need to identify butterflies."
– Connie Krochmal, suite101.com

"The meat of the book lies in the guide to the various species. It is richly furnished with information about the natural history of the different butterflies, including ranges, food sources, habitats and distinguishing marks. The text and photographs make it easy to identify species, whether you're an expert or a novice. Even if you don't know a Hoary Hairstreak from a blue rinse, with a little patience, you'll soon find yourself right at home with the local lepidoptera [...] Anyone who reads this book and uses it will only come away with an increased sense of wonder and appreciation for these ephemeral creatures of summer."
 – Rick Sullivan, Grand Rapids Press
