Anchored around the county seat of Jasper with a population of less than 500 and one of the most picturesque courthouse squares in the state, Newton County is a nature lover's dream. The majority of the county is composed of the Ozark National Forest and the scenic corridor of the Buffalo National River, the nation's first national river, where Jasper is a hub. Spring weekends find the area filled with vehicles bearing canoes and kayaks traveling to float the incomparable Buffalo River and, as year-round backpackers head out for scores of trails through the most striking wilderness in the eastern half of the nation. Amidst the scenery, long before the designation of the national river, Newton County was home to self-sufficient pioneers who began arriving in the early 1800s to build log cabins and farms to support their families--a spirit that remains today.

Arkansas Birds fills a space too long empty on the shelves of ornithologists and students alike, of naturalists, wildlife and conservation groups, bird and garden club enthusiasts, artists, and those dedicated people who may be all of these. The authors have drawn upon a wide range of sources, from prehistoric Indian sites to present-day field observation, to cover ever species of wild bird recorded in Arkansas. Accounts of such extinct species as the Carolina Parakeet keep us from taking for granted even the Northern Bobwhite and other common modern species. Early chapters introduce the reader to the habitats favored by various species; full descriptions are accompanied by line drawings and color photos. Arkansas Birds serves both as a quick reference and a general historical review. A discussion of the Bald Eagle traces its history from bones found in Indian burials, through Audubon's early observations, to modern population declines and successful observation efforts. This attractive and accessible volume is a guide long-awaited by both the professional student of birds and the amateur with a backyard feeder.--Jacket.
