Spiral bound, 220 pages. Has 100 or more color photos, mostly of specimens, illustrated keys, life history information. Gives seasonal information for Michigan. Has extensive references and a glossary. Looks very useful for anyone in the eastern or central United States. Luckily, many southern species just reach Michigan, so they are included. Includes all orthopterans, not just grasshoppers--a real plus. My only wish is that the photos were a bit larger.
