Comments: Mikula provides a brief history of the butterfly, explodes the myth of a "butterfly season" (some species hibernate) and discusses man's fascination with them through the ages. Various Northern species are examined, as are their eating habits and life cycles, the flowers that attract them, the climate they prefer and other intriguing patterns. A thorough profile is provided for each butterfly, with a list of suggested plants to grow for attracting them to the home garden.
