Synopsis: This pocket guide carries a description and clear colour photograph of each flower, along with its name in English, French, German, Italian and Latin. The 230 flowers featured are grouped by colour to aid quick identification. With notes on curious historical facts and the origin of some plant names, this is a perfect companion on Alpine walks for anyone interested in the unique plant life of the Alps. It happens to all visitors to the Alps - walkers, climbers and tourists alike. Out of the corner of your eye you spot a curious flower. Taking a mental snapshot of the image, you store it away and think 'must look that up when I get back'. This easy to use guide is small, relevant and easy to carry.

About the Author: After a degree in Anthropology and working in adult education, Gillian Price travelled through Asia and trekked the Himalaya. Eventually settling in Venice, she now works as a freelance travel writer. Gillian is steadily exploring all the mountain ranges and flatter parts of Italy, and has produced a series of outstanding guides for Cicerone. She is an active member of the Italian Alpine Club CAI and Mountain Wilderness.

Book Description Cicerone Press. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Alpine Flowers, Gillian Price, This pocket field guide to identifying 230 common Alpine flowers is packed with all the information you need to recognise your favourites while out in the mountains. Designed for the non-specialist, this little handbook is arranged by colour and also includes a glossary of flower parts and an introduction which describes the amazing lengths that these tiny gems go to to survive at altitude. Alpine expert author Gillian Price says: 'It never ceases to amaze me that such tiny plants can spend months on end buried under metres of snow and ice - weathering temperatures as low as minus 25 C - then sprout back to life when things thaw out and warm up. In springtime you can spot the fragile purple petals of the Alpine Snowbell pushing their way through snow - they contain an anti-freeze that enables them to melt it. Masters of adaptation and survival, alpine flowers can trap insects, store precious water, expel excess minerals and fool insects.' Each flower entry includes a clear photograph and essential description along with its name in English, Latin, German, French and Italian and interesting information about the origins of some of the more curious flower names. Each one is also indexed by its English and its Latin name so you can follow up a hunch about a name or find out more about a flower. Bookseller Inventory # B9781852845650
