Publisher Comments:

Featuring more than 1240 stunning color photographs, this comprehensive field guide will remain a trusted, authoritative trailside reference for years to come. It describes and illustrates 1220 commonly encountered species, both native and nonnative, including perennials, annuals, and shrubs. Encompassing the Pacific Northwest from southern British Columbia to northern California, from the coast to the mountains and high desert, this handy book is perfect for hikers, naturalists, native plant enthusiasts, and anyone wishing to learn about the amazingly diverse wildflowers of the region. Organized by flower color and shape, and including a range map for each flower described, it is as user-friendly as it is informative.

Moving to a country property 2 years ago, we have found this book to be a treasure. We also take it along on road trips from the coast to the desert in Oregon, Washington and California. There is a broad range of flowers covered, the photographs are beautiful and it is user friends, categorized in an easy to follow color section format. Of course not every flower imaginable is in this book but most of them are!

This is a must have for the rural property homeowner and the traveler that says "Hey, what is that flower?"

I wanted a new wildflower ID book for hikes and post-hike wildflower identification. 'Nature' greeting cards created from my digital phots cry out for correct flower names. This one book insures that more of my flower finds are suitably named; besides it is a beautiful volume and, not too big for a small pack.
