With his 420-page volume, author Howard Boyd presents readers with the ultimate handbook to the New Jersey Pine Barrens. While the bulk of the book (over 300 pages) contains listings and illustrations of the plant and animal species that live and grow with the Pine Barrens, Boyd begins his book by explaining and defining what makes this sandy soiled, wooded habitat so diverse and so unusual.

But just as the title suggests, the essence of this text is its devotion to identifying, classifying, characterizing and illustrating every living creature, from the whirligig beetle to the large-toothed aspen, that makes its home in the Pine Barrens.

Over 700 species, listed first under their common then scientific nomenclatures, are included. Each entry gives a detailed, non-technical description of a Pine Barren plant or animal, indicating when and where it is most likely to appear. Complementing most listings is an original ink drawing that will greatly aid the reader in the field as they search for and try to identify specific flora and fauna.
