"This visually striking guide honors the beautiful American landscape as it appears today."---Dave Pugl, Library Journal, starred review "[A] volume that must be savored. Turning each page is a delight for birders and nature enthusiasts alike."---Maileen Hamto, Seattle Book Review "This is a book for the naturalist, the scientist, the artist and the dreamer. It has both visual appeal and an important message for everyone. Read it, gaze at the illustrations with wonder and share it with others. Your day will be the better for having done so."---David Gascoigne, Travels with Birds "[A book] that would make a thoughtful gift for a young aspiring writer or artist." * Another Bird Blog * "A sumptuous book, packed full of art and history with a narrative that carries one along like a Mississippi Steamboat."---Bo Beolens, Fat Birder "Glorious watercolours and sketches."---Lorraine Connolly and Hadiyah Ilyas, The Countryman "[A] lovely book."---Mark Gamin, 10,000 Birds "Both fascinating and beautiful, and the mix of history and art is likely to appeal to anyone with an interest in either [nature or art]."---Stephen Menzie, British Birds
