Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Door County, Wisconsin, is a place of tremendous scenic beauty and appeal with 250 miles of shoreline, ten lighthouses, five state parks, and over a dozen county parks and conservation areas. Its unequaled number of wildflower species makes it special enough to deserve its own field guide.

Despite the fame of Door County and the great diversity of its flora, an adequate book to help outdoor enthusiasts identify its wildflowers has not existed until now. This simple-to-use guide contains nearly 400 watercolors, all painted from Door County specimens. Illustrations are grouped by flower color to aid in recognition; within each group, flowers are arranged in taxonomic order. Labeled drawings of plant parts and a glossary are included. Even the least experienced nature lover will find Wildflowers of Door County an easy and precise guide, while for the wildflower aficionado it provides floral and descriptive details unavailable in other guides. Visitors and residents alike can better experience Door County's wonders and richness with this book in hand.

The husband-and-wife team of botanist Paul G. Malhlberg and artist Marilyn Waite Mahlberg were inspired by their love of Door County to locate and write about (Paul) and portray in ink and watercolor (Marilyn) the approximately 375 wildflowers in this field guide. They live in Bloomington, Indiana, during the academic year, where Paul is Emeritus Professor of Biology at Indiana University. In the summer the couple resides in Door County, Wisconsin. Royalties earned from this book will be donated to the Door County Land Trust.

About the Author

As a teenager, PAUL G. MAHLBERG's decision to become a botanist was stimulated by summers at Door County's Kangaroo Lake. Now retired from the biology faculty at Indiana University in Bloomington, he continues to do research on secretion by plant cells. Artist MARILYN WAITE MAHLBERG is an active member of the Bloomington Area Arts Council and the Peninsula Arts School in Door County. Since retirement she has devoted her efforts to oil painting and to ecological activities, with a particular interest in the preservation of ecologically important areas of Door County. Their love of Door County inspired the Mahlbergs to locate and write about (Paul) and portray in ink and watercolor (Marilyn) the approximately 375 wildflowers included in this field guide. They live in Bloomington, Indiana, during the academic year, and in Door County, Wisconsin, in the summer.
