Book Review

This one is really a little treasure. It gives one the best "learning blocks" for getting the idea of peace and humanitarianism in the world today. 
I also love the details the author gives about each of her choices and the words they themselves spoke.
The world today definitely needs more books like this.

Book Review

The pictures are gorgeous and glossy, it just seems I can't quite find the ones in my yard in this book.  Aside from that it will be going on the trips out and such.

Compact World Atlas 7th Edition by DK

Book Review

This is just what I was looking for, except I think the pages should be centered rather than spliced so far into the binding one has to nearly ruin the binding to see something.  I love it otherwise though.  Simple and easy.  If you are looking for something with huge amounts of details of countries then this is not for you but if you are wanting something that is going to show you quickly where something is, even if it is in the binding then this one is for you

Absolutely charming cover I say that this book has helped me through 3 of the most difficult months of my life.  It sits on my desk next to my computer to give me daily smiles.  I am grateful this book came into my life at this time.

National Audubon Society

Field Guide To Birds Western Region

Book Review

A wonderful guide for a more experienced birder, not really something for good field use though, flipping back and fourth would get bothersome especially in a rough place.  Much better to leave at home and refer to at leisure.  The pictures in it are gorgeous though, of all the bird books I have I must say the images here are the best.  Information is good, a good hand sized book.  You could I suppose take it with you on a trip if you don't mind taking a moment to sit down and file through it.  Not something I would  recommend to an amateur birder though, it would simply be too hard to use in the field, an excellent guide for back yard birding for all levels though

National Audubon Society
Field Guide To Mammals

Book Review

Check above review, its the same with the exception that its not for birds but mammals.  I adore this one as well but again just not practical to use in the field or even at a zoo or garden.  Just leave it at home and take lots of photos and write notes then get into your books.  I really like these National Audubon Society books and plan on getting another fore my collection.  The images here are just as gorgeous and luxuriant.
