This field guide to butterflies of the western United States, west of the Mississippi River, completes Jeffrey Glassberg's large project to develop a set of photographic field guides to butterflies that actually work as field guides, for positive identification of butterflies from observation in the field. This guide and its companion volumes cover all the butterflies found within the continental United States.

Review:

"Books like these could open the world of butterflies to much more of the general public...Overall, I like this guide's arrangement...Binoculars supplies descriptions and, most important, scientific names and range maps on pages that face the photographs, which saves a lot of page turning...Lastly,
Butterflies Through Binoculars has a wonderful section on conservation." -- Paul R. Ehrlich, Science
"Bird watching has been popular for many years, but now it's time for butterfly watching to take the spotlight! With the help of this 'Butterflies Through Binoculars' this latest trend in nature study is made understandable through text and photographs."--Y.E.S. Quarterly
"Prayer answered! Six hundred twenty-five color photographs of butterflies in the wild! Color range maps that show where each species occurs, and when! Descriptions, punctuated with the diagnostic field marks in boldface! Timelines of peak flight abundance! And a quirky author's voice throughout
that communicates Glassberg's infectious love of his subject, something that makes this more than a field guide: it's a field companion."--Bird Watcher's Digest
"The best way to find out if a nature guide is any good is to test it in the field....Our test of Butterflies through Binoculars: The West out in the laboratory of Big Bend National Park proved that it's an exceptionally useful field guide. Those who seek to know the kind of butterflies flitting
over hill and dale will want to own a copy."--Gary Clark, Houston Chronicle
