Orthoptera of North-Eastern America
By W. S. Blatchley
The Nature Publishing Company, 1920
Old is not always bad. While it is seriously outdated (1920), most thorough and comprehensive single treatment of eastern US Orthoptera (and related insects) published is 'Orthoptera of North-eastern America' by W. S. Blatchley. Some subsets of the insects included in this book have been more recently treated in more depth, but not all together in one place.

The title is a bit misleading, because included are nearly all species then known to be found east of the Mississippi. Also, the definition of Orthoptera has changed over the years, and this book includes things such as Earwigs (Dermaptera), Roaches & Mantids (Dictyoptera), and Walkingsticks (Phasmatodea). It is well worth a search through libraries and used book shops if you are really interested in these insects. It does not have much in the way of illustrations (mostly drawings to aid in identification where necessary), but it is very interesting to read, with lots of discussion and detail. Each species is discussed at length and includes descriptions of the insect, habitat, life history when known, history, etc.

Songs of Crickets and Katydids of the Mid-Atlantic States
By Steve Rannels, Wil Hershberger and Joseph Dillon
(authors), 1998
Mentioned by Eric Eaton in a post--I have not heard this CD. It is available from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology (www.sapsuckerwoods.com). Can be ordered from the authors at http://cricketsong.tripod.com/ (link updated 10/7/2010).

Update: I have this CD, and the quality is very good. It overlaps, somewhat, Elliott and Hershberger, The Songs of Insects (1), an excellent book that includes a CD of 75 species of orthoptera, plus some cicadas.
