“The “Pocket Naturalist Guides” are colorful, pocket-sized, laminated, folded guides (3½" x 8¼" folded, open to 22" x 8¼"), designed to be taken into the wilderness. They cover states and wilderness regions, some featuring all wildlife and some much more focused (e.g., butterflies, ducks). Yes, they'll require creative shelving (we put ours in an old map box next to the other field guides), and their life span may be shorter than your average field guide, but their quality, low price, and variety are worth the inconvenience.” -Library Journal
