This book was very useful for my purpose. Due to the fact that I am in Pony Club, I was able to use this book to identify and use certains plants in competition and in my ratings. The explanations about the plant are very useful, as are the pictures. Unfortunately, not every detail can be shown with photographs. In order to compensate, it appears that drawings have been included to help. Very useful!!
