Book Description:

From Alaska to the Maritime Provinces, from the desert Southwest to the Pine Barrens of New Jersey, Keenan documents the American native orchid species in absolutely remarkable color photographs. Nearly all of the 145 species native to North America (excluding tropical orchids of Mexico and southern Florida) are included in his discussions and photographs.

About the Author:

An inveterate traveler to, and photographer of, wild habitats, Philip Keenan crisscrossed the country many times. He was well known for his expertise on birds (particularly his beloved warblers) and wild orchids; his book Wild Orchids Across North America won a Choice magazine award for Outstanding Academic Title in 1999. In his retirement years following a career in retail business, Philip's interest in the sciences led him to become an avid naturalist with a wide range of interests including conservation, birding, geography, meteorology, and horticulture. He contributed dozens of articles to various journals, including Orchids, in which his photos of wild orchids were a prized regular feature. He was a founding member of the North American Native Orchid Alliance, and a life member and former director of the Audubon Society of New Hampshire. Philip E. Keenan died in 2001 after a brief illness.
