Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Building on the success of his earlier field guides, naturalist Kenn Kaufman (Kaufman Field Guide to Birds of North America), here with his wife, Kimberly (contributing editor, Birds & Blooms), introduces a guide to the nature of New England. This volume contains more than 2000 color photographs and covers New England flora and fauna along with regional geology, astronomy, and marine habitats. Employing his trademark straightforward and nontechnical language, Kaufman provides concise guidelines for locating, observing, and identifying different species. The book's clean layout and easy-to-use features, such as range maps and colorful reference tabs, cement Kaufman's reputation for producing the most user-friendly field guides around. His innovative approach to species classification—such as organizing wildflowers by color—makes his book an excellent starting point for neophytes. VERDICT A welcome update to the National Audubon Society's 1998 Field Guide to New England, this is an essential compact reference guide for any amateur naturalist interested in New England.—Kelsy Peterson, Prairie Village, KS
