From the Publisher
“Can you compress New Hampshire’s natural beauty into book form? Perhaps not, but a new guide, The Nature of New Hampshire, makes a gorgeous attempt. The volume includes photos, drawings and text describing the state’s incredible diversity.” —Concord Monitor

“A comprehensive guide to the diverse terrain of the Granite State, from seacoast to mountains to marshes and rivers. Treats each region as a whole, looking at geology, flora and fauna. Handsomely illustrated with color photographs.”—Valley News

“Each chapter covers one of eight distinct biophysical natural community groupings in the state, complete with photos, drawings and well-written text.”—Kearsarge Magazine

“The numerous excellent photographs of the habitats and of the plants within them, nearly all of which were taken by the authors, greatly enhance the written habitat descriptions. . . . Recommended.”—Choice
