A Naturalist’s Guide to the Texas Hill Country (Volume 50) (W. L. Moody Jr. Natural History Series)

Editorial Reviews


“This book provides an excellent introduction to most of the common plants and animals of the Texas Hill Country.   It is well-suited to the budding naturalist, visitor, or newcomer to the region.  The photos and descriptions of common trees, shrubs, wildflowers, ferns, lichens, birds, mammals, fish, reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates, all in one volume, make this a valuable book for those who love the Hill Country.”—Steve Nelle, Wildlife Biologist — Steve Nelle Published On: 2014-09-12

“If I was going to have only one book about the resources of the Texas Hill Country, Mark Gustafson’s book would be it. He not only knows what to say, he also knows when and how to say it. As a result, this is a remarkably thorough treatment of the Hill Country that is as accessible as it is informative.”—William J. Quinn, Professor of Biology, St. Edward’s University — William J. Quinn Published On: 2014-10-27

“My Goal for the past two and a half decades is to help  people “see” the concepts [as in understand that they are land stewards] and in some respects this field guide does.” — Susan M. Sander, Founder, Reiverside nature center — Susan M. Sander Published On: 2013-11-22

“It’s an excellent tool to have while exploring, deciding on a vacation spot, or educating yourself on Texas history and wildlife.”—Review of Texas BooksReview of Texas Books
