Descriptions

As originally published by Golden Press, there were Golden Nature Guides, Golden Science Guides, Golden Field Guides, Golden Regional Guides, and Golden Handbooks. When St. Martin's Press aquired the Golden GuideĀ® trademark, they published Golden Guides and Golden Field Guides, some of which overlap with the previous series. For example, Weather was a Golden Science Guide when published by Golden, but is a Golden Guide when published by St. Martin's. (English, Unclassified)
