Mariposa Road: The First Butterfly Big Year by Robert Michael Pyle

Part road-trip tale, part travelogue of lost and found landscapes, all good-natured natural history,Mariposa Roadtracks Bob Pyles journey across the United States as he races against the calendar in his search for as many of the 800 American butterflies as he can find. nbsp; Like Pyles classicChasing Monarchs,Mariposa Roadrecounts his adventures, high and low, in tracking down butterflies in his own low-tech, individual way. Accompanied by Marsha, his cottonwood-limb butterfly net; Powdermilk, his 1982 Honda Civic with 345,000 miles on the odometer; and the small Leitz binoculars he has carried for more than thirty years, Bob ventured out in a series of remarkable trips from his Northwest home. nbsp; From the California coastline in company with overwintering monarchs to the Far Northern tundra in pursuit of mysterious sulphurs and arctics; from the zebras and daggerwings of the Everglades to the leafwings, bluewings, and border rarities of the lower Rio Grande; from Graceland to ranchland and Kauai to Key West, these intimate encounters with the land, its people,nbsp;and its fading fauna are wholly original. At turns whimsical, witty, informative, and inspirational,Mariposa Roadnbsp;is annbsp;extraordinary journey of discovery thatnbsp;leads the reader ever farther into butterfly country andnbsp;deeper into the heart of the naturalist.
