With these three guidebooks to the mountains of Georgia, North Carolina, and Virginia, the publisher launches a series that promises to include Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Vermont, New Hampshire, and the Adirondacks in the near future. Focusing on the flora, fauna, and geology of each region, these books present a wealth of natural history information in an intelligent text accompanied by beautiful etchings and helpful maps. Parks, trails, and other natural attractions are highlighted, and appendixes include conservation organizations, bibliographies, events, and outfitters. These handsome guides will appeal to any adventurer exploring the mountains on foot or by bike, by canoe or car. Highly recommended for natural history, recreation, or regional collections.?Pamela W.
