Whether beginner or professional, curious orchid hunters will be able to locate the nearly 50 species to be found in a wide variety of this region’s local habitat—from seashore to temperate rain forest to alpine meadow. Brown reveals the best spots to find the orchids he describes and offers expert advice on how to plan and execute an enjoyable (and environmentally responsible) outing. As with Brown’s other guides, all information is presented in a simple, straightforward style and with ample illustration so that proper identification is a snap.
