The book, Fishes of Okeefenokee ( correct title?) is a great book if you are
interested in the lowland species of GA. It has b/w drawings, which are
fair. The information about the swamp and the fish there is pretty good. It
is a small paper back and not very expensive. I think it was worth whatever
I paid for it, probably ten to fifteen bucks. It has some really good info
on the swamp and land area, that helps people understand lowland habitats
and how they work, versus the more popular " pretty" areas like streams and
lakes which have positive information on them all over.

Although a quarter of the species are different, and it is 1200 miles away,
this book could actually be used as a reference to my marsh here in central
and south central Wisconsin. My opinion is any reference book that is put
together right can be applied to alot more than what its designed to do.
Just as some salt water articles in magazines have helped me set up
freshwater tanks. Salt water enthusiasts seem to go much more indepth with
how the water, "plants" and animals all get along with the set up of
substrate and filtration etc.
