Wildflowers of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick & Prince Edward Island is a splendid pictorial record of Atlantic Canada's freshest blooms.

For years Mary Primrose pursued her passion for wildflowers. From early spring when there was still snow on the ground through to late fall, she sought out the plants that grow in the wild. From her collection of thousands of colour slides, Mary carefully selected her best images for this book. There are 179 images in all, of 98 different plants, arranged in order of flowering season, from spring to fall.

Accompanying the photographs are brief notes prepared by biologist Marian Zinck, along with information to help identify each plant and suggestions for where to look for each variety.

About the Author:

MARY PRIMROSE was first an amateur photographer, then worked as a photographer for the Biology Department of Dalhousie University. She died of cancer after a brief illness, not long after the work on Wildflowers of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island was completed.

Review:

"Primrose's compositions...are innovative and daring in their inattention to the conventional art-school rules... the work can double as an identification reference while claiming its rightful place on the coffee table." (Canadian Book Review Annual)
