5.0 out of 5 stars Butterflies of Alberta April 10 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is written in true John Acorn style: easy to read and humourous. The photography and illustrations are generally pretty fine. I wish we had one of these books for every province. The local aspect makes the book very significant. I'm going to copy'n'paste this comment into the Bugs of Alberta site as well since all the same comments apply. Really good value. My main focus with this purchase is to encourage our young grandchildren to develop their appreciation for bugs, butterflies, beetles, etc., while still being interesting at an adult reading level. The range maps, habitat description and information on overwintering are all features that many identification books lack. If there's a lack at all in this book, it might be the life-cycle element. But as is it is now, Butterflies of Alberta is an excellent reference book. Now I'd just like to have John Acorns "Nature Nut" series on dvd!

5.0 out of 5 stars A fabulous resource and an entertaining read June 25 1998
Format:Paperback
This is an excellent choice for any butterfly enthusiast. John Acorn, host of the television series "Acorn the Nature Nut" (my favorite TV show), provides a valuable and entertaining resource for all nature nuts. Don't let the title fool you - many of the species covered are wide-ranging and I find the guide useful in Georgia as well. Some of my favorite features of the book include the beautiful photographs of live specimens, tips on butterfly watching and photography, gardening for butterflies, and how to catch and release butterflies without hurting them. It also includes anecdotes from the author about how he found many of the species he photographed for the book. It is written in a conversational style without sacrificing scientific accuracy. A must-read!
