I live in the Texas coastal prairie, not the Hill Country, but I find this book the best! The photos are fantastic and the identification guides are top knotch! I have carried it with me for a year now and I'm still learning new tools to ID grasses. I wish they had a book for the coastal prairie that was as great as this book.
