National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Wildflowers: Western Edition Cover

 

Staff Pick

Since its founding in 1905, the National Audubon Society has actively promoted wildlife protection and environmental education. Keeping in sync with the work of its namesake and inspiration, famed wildlife artist John James Audubon (1785-1851), this not-for-profit organization has published a number of highly regarded field guides, handbooks, and writings on nature. The Field Guide to North American Wildflowers is an indispensable offering from the Audubon press. Prized for its accuracy, beauty, and utility, it's very well suited for hikers, nature enthusiasts, and anyone curious about the flowers that inhabit North America's western region, from Alaska to California and through the Rockies. Meticulously organized and easily portable, this guide contains 725 full-color photographs, 666 full-detail species descriptions (with notes on still more), flower groupings by color and shape, and a complete glossary of terms. Author Spellenberg's expertise shines in the concise descriptions of plant species, and his short introduction and "how to use" section make for a well-rounded body of reference. A noble companion for any backpack or shelf.

Publisher Comments:

WESTERN REGION

This fully revised edition brings a new level of beauty, accuracy, and usefulness to the field guide that wildflower enthusiasts have relied upon for more than 20 years.

More than 940 all-new, full-color images show the wildflowers of western North America close-up and in their natural habitats. The guide has been completely revised to make identification in the field easier than ever. Images are grouped by flower color and shape and keyed to clear, concise descriptions that reflect current taxonomy.
