    What a convenience!

    This book takes the place of SO MANY field guides. Take a hike in New England, and take this guide rather than dragging a bird guide, tree guide, plant guide, rock guide, reptile guide... you get the picture. For more details, you'll want to supplement this book, but it generally has in it whatever we find that we want to identify.
