The writing is personable and interesting. However, I think this book just screams out for maps and some nice line drawings of the butterflies. I really liked Pyle's breadth of knowledge and his laid back tone. I felt I was walking the trail with him at points. But I constantly had to refer to maps and butterfly guides to get a good sense of where he was and what he was seeing at certain points. I don't think this is the author's fault, but probably the publisher not wanting to put the money into the book. But it's fun reading despite the drawback.
