  • A one-of-a-kind, art-filled how-to guide geared to wildlife students and naturalists, based on the author's college course
  • Pages from actual field notebooks clearly illustrate what works and why
  • Hints and advice for outdoorspeople with even limited artistic skills

    For nature-lovers, birders, and students of wildlife and biology, keeping a field notebook is essential to accurately recording outdoor observations. This unique guide offers instruction on how to do it--what to look for, what information should be recorded and how to organize it, basic drawing skills using line and color, and incorporating maps and charts, as well as advice on equipment to take in the field and using conventional field guides. A colorful book that will teach and inspire.

    From the Author:

    How to Keep a Naturalist's Notebook was developed as a textbook for "Introductory Fieldcraft," a course I teach in the Honors College at Texas Tech University which focuses on learning to observe nature. It provides introductory guidance for drawing and writing about our experiences with nature. In it you will find tips on field sketching, writing, learning to identify birds and wildflowers, and even what you might want to carry into the field. If you feel intimidated by keeping a nature journal, either because you don't know where to start, or you feel you lack certain skills, then this book can provide some guidance for you.

    About the Author:

    Susan Leigh Tomlinson is a geologist, writer, artist, and faculty member of Texas Tech University, where she teaches courses in the Environment and Humanities minor in the Honors College. She lives in Lubbock, Texas.
