Reviews

"This work clearly represents the culmination of several lifetime's worth of study of the amphibians and reptiles of the central United States and is likely to become a valuable addition to the literature of this region."—Paul Hime, awarded a National Science Foundation fellowship for his work on amphibians of the region

"For those students who study the region this will be a book that of great importance."—William E. Ellis, professor emeritus at Eastern Kentucky University and author of A History of Education in Kentucky

"Delightful is not often a word associated with science books. In this case, the descriptor fits. Together [the authors] have compiled a practical and attractive guide to the salamanders, frogs, toads, turtles, lizards, and snakes of the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area (LBL)."—Tennessee Libraries
