Editorial Reviews

Paul Sterry's Complete Mediterranean Wildlife is a highly recommended, take-along field guide which comes packaged in a waterproof plastic cover to protect a guide packed with small color photos of wildlife ranging from birds to flowers and insects. It's unusual to have a guide filled with a range of wildlife under one cover; this format and presentation will prove an especially valuable take-along tote.
