“This book is excellent! It is an absolute MUST for anyone who has ever come across something strange outdoors and wondered what it was (galls, small tracks in the mud, or eggs, for instance). Now I know that those jet-black egg masses that the kids find on blades of grass during science camp are deerfly eggs! . . . This book is going to be a tremendous help in my outdoor nature classes.”

“I’m reminded of the passage in Annie Dillard’s Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, where she talks about the first people to have cataract surgeries, and who suddenly, after a lifetime of darkness, had their eyes opened to a world of light and color. That’s how I felt when paging through your book. Thank you for creating such a beautiful rosetta stone for unlocking the mysteries of the natural world.”
