Review quote

"A Guide to Natural Areas of Southern Indiana fills a void in available guidebooks geared to nature-based tourism. You would need to do hours and hours of internet research to compile just a small portion of what this one book provides. This is an excellent guidebook and offers a big-picture view of southern Indiana's diverse environments. There is something for everyone-from botany and geology to history-which makes the book extremely useful for both families and ecotour groups as well as the lone explorer seeking out a new experience." -Cheryl Ann Munson, Indiana University "Steven Higgs has done an excellent job of not only compiling the places, but also detailing the important flora and fauna located therein, along with recreational opportunities for visitors to these preserves. I cannot imagine the amount of time that went into exploring all these places! Anyone with a general interest in the outdoors, including hikers, birders, campers and fishermen, will find this book useful." -Johnny Molloy, author of Top Trails Great Smoky Mountains National Parkshow more
