See my previous Golden Guide post to see a few other cover and title variations.
The Golden Guides, originally Golden Nature Guides, were a series of 160-page, pocket-sized books created by Western Publishing and published under their “Golden Press” line (primarily a children’s book imprint) starting in 1949.
These books were written by experts in their field and illustrated in a simple straightforward style. Intended for primary and secondary school level readers, the first books were field guides illustrated by James Gordon Irving.
Packed with information, maps, charts and beautiful photographs.
Golden Guides are collectible and make great gifts for nature lovers.
