Media reviews
Once again, Kathy Biggs has managed to pack an enormous amount of dragonfly information into an extremely compact format. --Rick Bailowitz, Author 70 Common Butterflies of the Southwest

Common Dragonflies of California is great! It fills the niche in California Wildlife field-guides that was begging to be occupied! The color balance is dead-on reality. With its petite dimensions and light weight, it should ride in the pocket or backpack of every naturalist, hiker and biker in the state from May through September. --Rich Stallcup, PRBO CA, author Pelagic Birds of Monterey Bay

Common Dragonflies of California is an uncommon book. Full of sound advice and chock full of excellent color photos, this book will be of great interest to any California nature lover. I am the kind of person who loves to know the name of every tree, shrub, flower, reptile, bird and fish that I see. Now that I have this little jewel, I'm going to learn how to identify the dragonflies too. The more we learn about nature, the more enjoyment we get from it. I highly recommend this fine book! I expect it would make a great present too, for the right person. --Tom Ogren, author of Allergy-Free Gardening
