Top Customer Reviews
The clarity of the Golden Guide Trees more than compensates for its smaller size. Highly recommended.
The newest editions while no longer $0.25 are very similar to the old ones and just as valuable to the novice of 8 or 80.
Best of all one can flip through them in an hour or so and then consult them when that dekay snake, wolf spider, wood thrush or fossil containing sediment comes into view. From these guides a lifelong interest in looking closely at everything may arise. While the era of Heathkits is gone for our children and grandchildren this series may still help in creating a scientist, professional or otherwise.
Thankfully, this volume is easy to use and the entries, though comparatively brief, provide the reader with a wealth of pertinent information. That is also to say that the reader isn’t bogged down with a lot of minutia. The drawings are abundant and helpful.
I lend it out to my friends every now & again.
Has drawings, not pictures, but they are very accurate and easy to read & understand.
Has a few pages dedicated only to Oak Trees leaves & acorns, too!
(White Oak p85, Black Oak p97, and their acorns)
Of course, lots of other trees, too! Measurements in feet & inches, not cm and meters, like some books.
Definetly worth the purchase - For you, your friends, your library, and your purse or backpack.
Mine is the (c) 2001 "Revised and Updated" version
The small size, however, means that the illustrations are not as large or detailed as we would prefer. It also limits the amount of specific information that can be included. We recently relocated to the Pacific Northwest and have found region-specific books (particularly from Lone Pine Publishers) to be superb.
I recommend this as a great resource at a very good price.
