Just Enough Field Guide
  • Just Enough Field Guide

    This field guide is designed to help people fully enjoy and experience the outdoors, and pass on the skills. Don't be a babe in the woods anymore. Understand what's going on around you, how to read the landscape, plants and animals, and the human history in a natural place. You'll learn just enough to start engaging more deeply--just enough to be dangerous. It can be created for any natural or recreational area. Emphasizes learning just enough about the land to optimize the recreational experience.  The field guide describes everything that makes the area unique, and gives the visitor the foundation they'll need to understand what they see around them. It's a paperback book that's about 6x8", with 64 color pages of maps, photos and explanations that are specific to the area. While regular field guides cover big regions and can be difficult to use, this modern field guide covers the subject area, is easy to read, and explains what you'll encounter and why it matters.


    The field guide can be enjoyed on its own or offered for retail sale. Includes promotional options that let you customize it to your taste or brand, including ways to advertise your business or organization and show your support for the area. The price covers the cost of creation and one printed copy. Once the book is created, you'll have exclusive distribution rights and can order as many copies as you want from the printer, at $12 or less each, with quantity discounts.
