Desert and Mountain Plants of the Southwest

Desert and Mountain Plants of the Southwest

by Dorothy Vandyke Leake, Marcelotte L. Roeder, John B. Leake

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This guide to 260 plants of the Southwestern deserts and mountains includes excellent line drawings useful for identification, but the text doesn't measure up. While the cover states that the book is for ``travelers, amateur natural historians, beginning botanists, and all admirers of the southwestern landscape,'' it is not obvious what use one would make of the book. Why the 260 plants included were chosen is never explained (and why only eight cacti?). The text gives very little information and seldom any ranges. Many entries consist of only two or three sentences of remarkable simplicity. The authors would have done better to produce a field guide without the tidbits of trivia. Not recommended.-- Katharine Galloway Gartska, Intergraph Corp., Huntsville, Ala.
Contains descriptions and line drawings of some 250 plants, for travelers and others who admire the southwestern landscape. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
