Books in the Bur Oak series represent the Press’s dedication to celebrating the literature, history, geography, and culture of the Great Plains with an intense focus on natural history and environmental issues. Covering subjects from archaeology, history, and ornithology to prairie restoration, gardening, and sustainability, Bur Oak Books emphasize the environmental past, present, and future of our region. Bur Oak Guides, which include user-friendly fold-out laminated guides and a wide array of paperback field guides, assist in a more direct exploration of the natural world. Named after the state tree of Iowa, Bur Oak titles are intended for recreational and professional naturalists as well as all those interested in studying and preserving the habitats, plants, and animals of the Upper Midwest. We welcome suggestions for reprints of classic works and laminated guides in addition to new works.
