Dragonflies of the North Woods: 3rd Edition 2017

Written by: Kurt Mead

Winner of the National Outdoor Book Award, this newly revamped comprehensive reference guide will lead you to all 102 species of North Woods dragonflies and some common damselflies. It’s the first guide exclusively for Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan and northwestern Ontario.

Over 250 new and better photos, and 30-plus new illustrations have been added to the Third Edition (2017) of our best-selling Dragonflies of the North Woods. The new maps are larger and updated with the latest survey data. All 102 species of dragonflies found in northern Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan are included; and each has a full 2-page spread!

We’ve added and updated several “Quick Keys” for field mark identification. Here is some of the fascinating knowledge you’ll gain about the “winged dragons”:

  • The common Green Darner makes a 1,000-mile migration to the southern United States.
  • The Dragonhunter is a dragonfly so fierce it eats large butterflies, and even other dragonflies!
