I truly enjoy and use this book. When I am out walking the dog or canoeing, I see plants in bloom. This guide has helped me to identify many wildflowers. This volume is for Northeastern and Northcentral North America. Lawrence Newcomb has done so much work and the illustrations by Gordon Morrison are superb. Thank you! Sometimes a line drawing (as opposed to a photo) helps you key into the differences you need to look at for identification.

One of the best laid out field books or guidebooks you will ever see. Too bad I don't care that much and have one for a college field trip that was concurrent with a much more interesting Geology of Northern Michigan class. Still worth having just in case I ever care to decipher a specific violet out in the woods. Assuming I have it with me at the time, which is unlikely.

A well designed, easy to use field guide, including a key, which makes it much more useful for definitive identifications.

For weeds, flowers & shrubs, this is one of the best ways to find out what the plant is. It works best if you know what the flower looks like - that's the starting point. If you don't, you often can still figure it out, but it takes longer, requires more lookups. There are some color prints, but mostly it is B&W sketches that are quite good. Descriptions are short but to the point. I have used this in Maryland & Kentucky. It does contain a lot of invasives & transplants, but isn't completely comprehensive, of course. I use it only to identify the plant's common & Latin name. Other resources are needed to double check & get more in depth information. It's really just for identification.

This is virtually the only botany guide you will need. Only takes a few minutes to get used to the keys.

Excellent field guide to pack or take along on a multi-day camping trip or just a walk through the local woods. Trying to look up a photo in other field guides to match what's in front of you has never worked for me. Newcomb's guide is easy to use and it's been correct everytime I have used it.

This is the gold standard. The unique key walks you through the identification process. This is the must have field guide.
