Editorial Reviews

Asheville Citizen-Times

The finest book on tree identification I have ever seen... Magnificent pen and ink drawings... [this book] will be of interest to anyone who loves the outdoors.

American Reference Books Annual

Although the title suggests this is a guide to plants in a limited geographic range, the plants here are found in many areas of eastern North America, and the book can therefore be used as a guide for this larger area. But for naturalists visiting the beautiful area of the Southern Appalachians, it is a detailed and useful guide to the amazing variety of trees, shrubs, and woody vines growing there.
