Description
This book invites you to see the natural world in all its intricacy and intense beauty and become a knowledgeable steward of the wild.

From the mountains to the ocean shores, from the wetlands to the deserts, North America teems with flora and fauna in delicately balanced ecosystems found nowhere else on Earth. With this book in hand, you will understand the language of nature and see those wild places with new eyes. You'll learn to recognize the lobed leaf of an Oracle Oak, the webbed tracks of a River Otter, and the fine, cream-colored tentacles of a Frilled Anemone. This volume celebrates a tradition of knowledge established by the Nature Study Guild. For more than sixty years, the Guild's pocket guidebooks have helped hikers, campers, foragers, and explorers navigate the great outdoors. Now, the best of the guides' informative text and iconic illustrations are gathered in one handsome hardcover: the perfect reference for today's ramblers.

FOR NATURE LOVERS OLD AND NEW: More and more people are invested in and curious about the natural world—from avid campers and hikers to those worried about climate change. This book, with its celebratory tone and charming vintage style, will appeal to anyone who cherishes the natural world.

NOSTALGIC APPEAL: The classic nature illustration style evokes memories of learning about flora and fauna in childhood, making this a wonderfully nostalgic gift.

BEAUTIFUL BLEND OF ART AND SCIENCE: This volume presents detailed scientific information in a gorgeous package, a deluxe hardcover that will grace coffeetables and bookshelves. It makes a perfect gift for anyone interested in biology or illustration (or both!).

Perfect for:
  • Nature lovers
  • Hikers, campers, and foragers
  • Environmentalists
  • Scientists and science students
  • Teachers and parents
  • Fans of vintage illustration
