I absolutely love this book. I already know quite a bit about DFW nature, but there was more to learn. We’ve camped at every DFW State Park and have visited many of the places listed in the book, but there are some new places that we definitely need to visit and some old ones we should revisit in another season. It will definitely be buying this book for our home library. If you are looking to learn more about the nature in DFW and places you can visit to observe nature, then this is the book for you. Thank you NetGalley and Timber Press for the opportunity to review this book.
