Media reviews

"Dragonflies have been around for over 250 million years, and it's about time they got the recognition they deserve [...] Now that shortcoming has been rectified for the 307 North American species in Dragonflies Through Binoculars, a compact book full of information [...] [Sidney W. Dunkle] has succeeded admirably with this volume, which is sure to delight the ever-increasing ranks of dragonfly enthusiasts [...] The range maps alone are worth the price of the book [...] Buy this book and spend a sunny summer afternoon along the shore of a stream, pond, or lake; your life will be transformed."
– Dennis R. Paulson, Science

"This long anticipated field guide has filled one of the major identification gaps for the general naturalist in North America [...] The species accounts [...] contain a wealth of previously unrecorded biological and field identification information."
