My only complaint about this book is that it is too slim! I do wish more species were covered in it, though I understand it's smaller size makes it easier to travel with and less formidable to those new to entomology. Highly recommended! ( )

Ample illustrations and accessible test make this a good introduction to the bugs of British Columbia. As the title indicates, it covers more than just insects: It shows common moths, spiders and arthropods as well, with a good description of what makes each group different. It's very much an "entry level" book, but for the beginner or the casual observer ("What is this thing?!?") it's a useful resources. It's a great tool for young travelers at the campgrounds and rest stops of the Province. ( )
