This pocket guide carries a description and clear colour photograph of each flower, along with its name in English, French, German, Italian and Latin. The 230 flowers featured are grouped by colour to aid quick identification. With notes on curious historical facts and the origin of some plant names, this is a perfect companion on Alpine walks for anyone interested in the unique plant life of the Alps. It happens to all visitors to the Alps - walkers, climbers and tourists alike. Out of the corner of your eye you spot a curious flower. Taking a mental snapshot of the image, you store it away and think 'must look that up when I get back'. This easy to use guide is small, relevant and easy to carry.
