It is a BIG book, so the $5.50 for postage is not that bad considering.

Also, many Virginia fishes occurs throughout other parts of the East Coast.
So it's a useful reference for identifying fishes and learning about their
natural history even for you folks in Georgia!

Fishes of Virginia, along with Fishes of Wisconsin and the Peterson Field
Guide, are the most-consulted fish books I own.

P.S. I wonder how Jenkins & Burkhead feel about years of labor and love
being reduced to the $10 bargain bin?
