From the Inside Flap:


"This stunningly beautiful book provides a wealth of information about when and where to see the world's most impressive displays of wildflowers. The text is a pleasure to read and readily conveys the author's enthusiasm for his subject. Wildflower lovers will be easily seduced by the vast flower-filled landscapes and intimate portraits of individual species. I can think of no other book like it."--Carol Gracie, coauthor of Wildflowers in the Field and Forest
