There are 8,000 snakebites in the US every year. Plant ingestion results in 63,000 calls to national poison centers annually. This guide identifies some of the most feared and dangerous North American species of animals and plants and its purpose is twofold: 1) to debunk irrational myths about species such as snakes, spiders, sharks and bears; 2) to educate people about the proper action to take if one is confronted and/or injured by these dangerous species. This guide is an excellent source of portable information and ideal for field use.

Has some good info in it only thing I do not like is the fact that the pictures are drawings very nice drawings but I would have preferred actual photos of certain things sometimes a drawing does not have as much detail as a photo and when dealing with dangerous plants I would want to risk being confused. I grew up in a suburb and unfortunately I did not get as much training about the outdoors as I would have liked so this is just my opinion, a photo would have been better for me. But over all the size and quality of the material it is printed on is great and fits perfectly in my backpack still very much worth getting because you never know.
Waterproof booklet folds out and has 11 pages. Shows colored drawings and brief details about poisonous or dangerous plants, mushrooms, near shore creatures, fish, sharks, flying insects, ants, ticks, leeches, scorpions, spiders, venomous snakes, reptiles, birds, mammals. Not by any means as detailed as a book but much more compact and lightweight. Perfect for a backpack.
we got them for our family because my husband always seems to find the "itchy plant" out on the mississippi when hunting ducks.. so he wants them to all know what they look like..i like the fact that the guide is plastic covered and folds so nice and flat..tx
