Anyone have any suggestions as to some good wildlife and floral nature books that I can take on an extended hike with me? I would like to see some plants and animals and actually know what they are :).
Lightweight please.

Thanks.

Peterson's Field Guides are great. 3 3/4 wide, 7 1/4 long, 3/8 thick, they weigh a couple of ounces. The wild flower book turns a vacant lot into an educational experience.

I believe that Petersons and Audubon both have a guide to the Eastern Forests, and may have birds, plants, trees, flowers, etc. I may have to check them out myself...
