I came across this great book while searching for a book on hummingbirds. I found several on the "hummers" but this one really caught my attention. A must have for anyone who loves nature. This book is jam packed with great information, full color photos, It covers EVERYTHING, watering, feeding, plants, shrubs to grow, beautiful pictures, great info on various butterflies and hummers. Very reasonably priced, a great book to give as a gift to someone who is into attracting hummers & butterflies. You will NOT be disappointed in this book, am glad I found it. I keep it right on my desk as I use it so often as a reference to look up a butterfly I have seen, and this book is just a treasure chest of information! Highly recommend any one who loves nature should buy this.

I thought I had army worms on my parsley and was ready to treat it with Sevin dust until my sister told me that parsley is the host plant for swallowtail butterflies. She gave me this book and it has been my guide for adding plants to my yard to attract butterflies and hummingbirds. It has worked!
