Review

This book allows everyone to find joy and fun in scientific data. It brings history and data to life with incredible photos, maps, and the stories of the many people behind it.

A well-written, in-depth treatise on butterflies found in Maine and the Canadian Maritime provinces complete with excellent images, figures, and maps. Anyone interested in butterflies will welcome this addition to their shelves.

— Kent McFarland, senior conservation biologist, Vermont Center for Ecostudies

Offering a comprehensive summary of the current status, distribution, and biology of the butterflies of Acadia, this meticulously composed book fills a glaring gap in the written works on butterflies in this region.

This comprehensive account will undoubtedly inspire the next generation of butterfly enthusiasts to cherish and protect these symbols of the Acadian region’s diversity.

Among the very best, most thorough butterfly guides ever produced. All who own it will be able to better enjoy and recognize each species, take part in citizen science afield, and help conserve these flying treasures.
