About this title:

Synopsis: Lifesize illustrations and descriptive paragraphs on the origin and botanical classification of American wild flowers

Review: Using the famous full-color paintings of Mary Vaux Walcott as illustrations, this tiny gem of a book depicts 400 wildflowers and plants from all over the country. Some were chosen for their beauty or rareness, others because they are old (and familiar) friends. Either way, Walcott's exquisite paintings capture the delicacy and diversity of America's flowering plants. Wildflowers of America also provides an index with distinguishing characteristics to aid in identification, making this the perfect pocket companion for hikes and nature walks.
