"Why lug your tattered one-pound Guide to the Birds of North America when you'll only be in Knoxville during an overnight stopover between flights? Still, that's time enough to identify the hooded warbler with its distinctive black bonnet, the blue grosbeak and the all-red summer tanager with your handy Pocket Naturalist's Guide to Tennessee Birds. This (guide) and others slip nicely into your purse or breast pocket, supplementing the more complete birding guides."

"Pocket Naturalist Guides are to nature-loving backpackers what CliffsNotes are to teens trying to navigate Shakespeare: essential. Lightweight and water- and dirt- (resistant), each 22-by-81/2-inch guide folds down to slip easily into a water bottle pocket and sells for $5.95. Color illustrations and short descriptions help you quickly identify birds, flowers, trees, and a variety of other creatures. The ultra-frugal backpacker can use the general guides, such as "Pond Life," "Animal Tracks," and "Weather" throughout North America, while the more inquisitive can purchase regional, state, and park guides."

"I have reviewed the "Speakeasy" ("Pocket Traveler") series, and want to congratulate you on a wonderful product. I am very impressed with the easy-to-use format and compact size. At a quick glance anyone would be able to quickly ascertain the benefits of using the product while traveling abroad, especially when the traveler doesn't speak the native language."
