Jeffrey Glassberg’s Butterflies through Binoculars series has introduced thousands of people to the beauty and excitement of butterflies. The series has been hailed by many: “May do for butterflies what Peterson did for birds” (Village Voice); “Books like these could open the world of butterflies to much more of the general public.” (Paul Ehrlich in Science magazine); and “With it in hand, you will be able to identify almost every butterfly you get a reasonable look at in the field” (John Shuey in American Butterflies); “Glassberg treats his subject as an open door. Walk through it and begin what can be a lifetime adventure.” (E.O. Wilson)
With more than 3250 eye-catching photographs and embedded text detailing how to identify these remarkable animals, this work builds upon previous books, making the radiant world of all Mexican butterflies accessible to the public for the first time.
