Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"This book will be a joy to those wood-walkers and strollers who have been puzzled by the skeletal remains of herbaceous plants that they see in winter". — Roger Tory Peterson, editor of Peterson Field Guide Series

This charming guide identifies over 135 of the common species of wildflowers and weeds found in the northeastern United States. Each plant is superbly illustrated with a full-page drawing accompanied by an elegant description of the plant's key characteristics. In addition, a step-by-step key to plant identifications and an illustrated glossary of common plant parts and botanical terms has been included to make this a splendid and valuable resource in identifying the dormant but various vestiges of spring and summer.
-- "A book as modest as the quiet winter countryside from New York to Boston ... (by a) gifted young author and artist". — Philip Morrison, Scientific American
