Written for people with no botanical knowledge who are curious about the names of wildflowers, this book is beautifully illustrated with 214 full-color photos arranged by color of flower. Each photo refers the reader to the text description of the flower, which includes the common and botanical name, areas where it is found, and possible uses by Native Americans and pioneers. Over 187 of the most common and significant wild plants found in the western Mojave Desert and bordering foothills and canyons are included. This guide should be in the glovebox of every Southern Californian who ever vowed to take a ride out to the Antelope Valley to see the wildflower blooms.

Milt Stark is not a botanist, but rather a wildflower photographer who is fascinated with the history and folklore of native plants. He has lived in the Antelope Valley area since 1923 and has been an active member of the California State Poppy Reserve, serving as president of the executive committee. He has been co-leader of the wildflower bus tours sponsored by the Theordore Payne Foundation; narrates a slide show on wildflowers to schools and community groups; and works with the Wildflower Preservation Committee and the West Antelope Valley Historical Society, of which he is past president.
