The National Audubon Society, founded in 1905, has a long and distinguished record in the appreciation and preservation of wild nature. Their wildflower field guides contain clear, lovely photographs of specimens, conveniently divided by color for quick identification in the field, while the second part gives an authoritative classification of species within their family arranged by scientific name.

This is a wonderful guide to take with you when traveling. The book's organization enables you to find the names of flowers quickly and easily. Each section of the book is divided first by the flower's color, then by the flower's shape, number of pedals, placement of pedals, etc. After you find the picture of the flower, you are then directed to a description in the back of the book giving you a more complete description and growth habits. Although the book is hefty, the size is small enough to tuck into my backpack for day hikes. On longer hikes when the weight you are carrying is more important the book stays in the car and is used when flower photos are uploaded. All of the Audubon's books are great and make great gifts for like minded friends.
