The book has outstanding photos, and a decent text--More detail than in a field manual, but not as much as in (for instance) the Sibley book on bird behavior. Unfortunately, it focuses on birds of the Northern Prairie--Canada, Montana, and the Dakotas mostly. This is shown via a map near the front of the book, but not mentioned on the front or back cover.
The big strength of the book is the photos. Excellent photos. I enjoy the book, even though the region is not my preferred one.

Wayne Lynch is intoxicated with the beauty and mystery of the prairie and its denizens. He is a first rate science writer with a subtle sense of humor and a world class bird photographer to boot. I love all his books but this is one of the best. I highly recommend it to all nature lovers as a rare treat; it is so much more than just another bird book. I predict it will become a classic of the genre.
