Item Description Author
Mayflies: An Angler’s Study of Trout Water Ephemeroptera This big book on such a very narrowly defined subject provides a vast amount of information on a single order of insect: Ephemeroptera, the mayflies. It is written for the novice and expert fly fishers who wish to understand the fundamentals of mayfly entomology and how to effectively fish mayfly species inhabiting the trout waters of North America. There are chapters on the mayfly’s life cycle, detailed sections on many common species, and instructions for the fly tier. Drawings, photos, charts, and graphs, enhance the considerable descriptive and scientific text. This is an exhaustive study that should provide serious anglers and entomologists with useful and fascinating information for those difficult hours spent off the water. Malcolm Knopp and Robert Cormier (1997)

Native American Ethnobotany An extraordinary compilation of the plants used by North American native peoples for medicine, food, fiber, dye, and a host of other things. Anthropologist Daniel E. Moerman has devoted 25 years to the task of gathering together the accumulated ethnobotanical knowledge on more than 4,000 plants. More than 44,000 uses for these plants by various tribes are documented here. This is undoubtedly the most massive ethnobotanical survey ever undertaken, preserving an enormous store of information for the future. The author has also developed an online Native American Ethnobotany Database of similar information. Daniel E. Moerman (1998)

Roadside Geology of Montana Montana’s geologic history includes a long succession of disturbances that changed the rocks, then changed many of them again. Unraveling these events reveals a geologically quiet continent that got scrambled in a long and grinding collision with the Pacific crustal plate. Through detailed geologic maps and lively text, Roadside Geology of Montana deciphers the complicated rock record and uncovers each layer of Big Sky Country. David Alt and Donald W. Hyndman (2003)
