Description
Part road-trip yarn, part travelogue of lost and found landscapes, and all good-natured natural history, this follow-up to Chasing Monarchs tracks Bob Pyle's journey across the United States as he races to complete a butterfly "Big Year," searching for as many of the 800 American butterfly species as he can find.

"Pyle's paean to the mariposas (Spanish for butterflies) is as much about the people he met and the places he chased his sometimes elusive prey as it is about butterflies. Pyle keeps things low-tech: Marsha, a cottonwood-limb butterfly net; his 35-year-old Leitz binoculars; and a bunch of field guides, maps, notebooks, and mechanical pencils. Many pints of beer (all mentioned by name) are consumed; many fellow naturalists met up with; and many insect bites, minor injuries, vagaries of weather, and car repairs are dealt with, until by the end of the year Pyle had seen 477 species, all of which are listed in the appendix. This one is great fun."Booklist
