Wild Flowers of Field and Slope is the first new edition in Harbour Publishing's planned reproduction of the best of these essential volumes. The descriptions and photographs not only provide a comprehensive guide, but also reveal one man's infectious enthusiasm for the beauty of our environment and his ardent awareness of the need for its preservation.

For those lucky enough to live among or travel to fields and slopes inhabited by wild flowers, this book is a necessary companion. Travellers to these lush areas can learn about and identify such diverse plants as Fool's Onion, Phantom Orchid and Prairie Smoke, to name just a few. Latin names, highly readable descriptions and glossy colour photographs are included with each species.
