    Nice addition to my wildflower guides

    A little heavier than what I would like for a field guide. Beautiful photos to help with identification with botanical names referenced to another section with common names. I wish they had put the common name along with the picture for a novice wildflower person like me.

    Best wildflower field guide

    This may very well be the most complete wildflower field guide I have ever used. As a former Park Ranger, that says a lot. This guide has plants just not found in other guides. Great photos show all parts of the plant...not just flower-or-leaves-or-stem. A must for your collection. A little too heavy to carry in the field...how about a softcover version, Univ. of Georgia Press??!?! It's been out for over 6 years at the time of this writing.
