From the Back Cover:

'A matchless handbook for decades, this classic has been the natural history bible of countless teachers and others who seek information about their natural environment. Written originally for those elementary school teachers who knew little of common plants and animals, and even less about earth beneath their feel and the skies overhead, this book is for the most part as valid and helpful to day as it was when first written in 1911.


Where else but in this 3-lb., 900-page paperback can students find so many answers to their endless questions - about animals, plants, rocks and minerals, climate and weather, and about the skies at night - that is, about one's environment? No other natural history handbook has been as popular with grade school, high school, and college students. First appearing in 1911, it has been republished dozens of times, for the most part with little change other than updating.
Science Books and Films (January 1987)

"Quality field guides will enrich your nature encounters. A comprehensive resource is Anna Botsford Comstock's Handbook of Nature Study."―Malinda S. Zellman, Bay Area Parent (June 2000)

"Did you know that this classic was still in print? Focused on the northeast U.S., this book describes a wonderful diversity of basic natural history."―Ecology (January, 2004)

Although many readers in the chemical, biological and physical disciplines will profit by the publication of this book, I feel that biologists stand to gain the most. For most biological scientists this book will open up a new scientific world.... Chemists, physical chemists and chemical physicists who are considering entering the biological field will also find the book helpful because of the large amount of biological data and the large number of applications to biological processes reviewed. Highly recommended! ―The Quarterly Review of Biology (June, 1987)
