Reviews - What do our customers think?
Awesome  May 30, 2008
This is well worth the purchase. The photographs are beautiful and all are linked to the description of the flowers.
 
I wish I could give it 4 1/2 stars  Apr 18, 2008
The book itself is great. My husband and I are often outdoors: hiking, biking, and jogging. This is a great and easy to use reference to identify the flowers we come across. The pictures are nicely organized by flower type and color. The back section has great descriptions about the flowers.

The only reason for the imperfect rating is the fact that the book is thick for the glue binding and with very frequent use the pages will come out. Even with that factor I would definitely recommend this book!
 
Beautiful photos  Mar 27, 2008
The last wildflower book I had was a state conservation sponsored book that was 15 years old. I finally treated myself to this beautiful book the other day since I plan on taking my kids camping and wanted to share my love of wildflowers with them this summer. The pictures are crisp and clear and easily sorted by color, then shape. There is also a very thorough description of the flower in the back. It is well worth the 20 or so dollars!
 
The Ultimate Test  Jul 7, 2007
Each of our five kids had to collect wildflower specimens and identify them with some general information for their eighth grade project. We used these books with each one and they are still in great shape after more than 10 years usage. I recently purchased the updated versions and was very pleased with the photos. I didn't really think they could get better but they did!
 
Excellent Guide to Wildflowers  Apr 20, 2007
I bought this book to help me identify the flowers I encountered both in my backyard and in a local state park. Happily, I can report that I was able to identify almost all of them that I came across (one Violet variant, the Confederate Violet, was not mentioned anywhere I could see in the book, but a North Carolina State wildflower website helped me identify it). The color photographs are top notch, many showing both a closeup of the flower, and the plant as a whole. Detailed information on each plant is also available, including the common flowering periods, a location range, dimensions of the flower as well as the entire plant, and much more. If you purchase this book, be sure to read this detailed information when identifying a flower; a number of variants are mentioned in the text that are not shown in the photographs. Overall, I am greatly pleased with this book (though it was the only one I could find that covered plants in the south-eastern part of the United States). Highly recommended!
