This book is a field guide to all the species of Odonata (dragonflies and damselflies) in the eastern United States and Canada, east of the western boundaries of Ontario, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Arkansas, and Louisiana. I chose state and provincial boundaries rather than the exact middle of the continent because naturalists’ interests and odonate record keeping are typically at this level.

I love this book! I rec'd it yesterday and immediately looked at every photo. The photography is very good and this book contains a lot of information about the life cycles of odonata, much more than the field guides. It also has a section on raising odonata in tanks. The book is from the NY Public Library and has some wear - bumped corners, loose hinges and a few pages with sticky spots, but nothing that can't be repaired easily. There are no torn pages and no markings except for some library labels. Overall, a wonderful book full of information interesting to anyone who likes watching dragonflies.

Dragonflies have always been among my favorite insects and I was somewhat aware of their variety and beauty, especially in North America. However, Jill Silsby has produced a book that amazed me with the complexity of dragonflies and the closely related damselflies worldwide. These amazing creatures are now starting to get the appreciation they deserve and this book amply demonstrates why they should be appreciated for their ephemeral beauty, their astonishing variety, their remarkable life histories and their interesting behavior. From spider-catching Forest Giants (damselflies) to the primitive Petaltails (dragonflies) they are all here in this book. I wish that such an introduction had been available to me when I was beginning in entomology!
The excellent photographs should also be mentioned. These are just wonderful and I cannot express my full admiration for the selection! Every insect and arachnid order should have a similarly well-illustrated tome written about it in the same format.
If you have even a remote interest in these fantastic insects, get this book!

This is a beautiful book. The pictures are wonderful & the info on each dragonfly so easy to understand. I just love these little creatures so I was very happy when I found this book. Worth every penny. I know I will refer to it often.

This is a beautiful book and very informative. My interest in dragonflies is from an artistic and mythological standpoint, as well as from a fly-fisherman's view of lures for fish. The book contributes to all of these interests.

A great general coverage of odonates occurring around the world.

Being an amateur and looking for good books on dragonflies is hard. This book gives plenty of facts and pictures. A great alternative if you are not ready to spend $... on some of the the more well known books.
