    Highly Recommended - Excellent backpackers reference guide

    Highly Recommend- this book covers trees, plants, animals, birds--it is the perfect travel companion for any outdoor excursions in the Pacific Northwest. The photographs are excellent and the book layout is logical. Plus, it is compact enough that it can be put in a backpack to be carried.

    Excellent guide for Northwest hikers

    I bought this for my 11 year old son for Christmas. He immediately found the fish and birds we had been checking out during our vacation, so it is easy to use and it has everything. It is a nice size for backpacks too.
