Reviews

"These authors prove in no uncertain terms there is much to explore out-of-doors in Lincoln-land."--Booklist
"The definitive guide to Illinois wildlife."--The News-Gazette


"Very well done! Exploring Nature in Illinois is an enjoyable read providing vivid descriptions of Illinois's special natural places. . . . [Jeffords and Post] know these areas well [and] highlight the history, natural character and resource management--all of which helps the reader develop a better understanding of each place. . . . I look forward to taking their challenge and venturing out throughout the state to listen, look, hike, photograph, paddle and explore Illinois's wild places."
--Elizabeth Jones, Assistant Manager, Cypress Creek National Wildlife Refuge
