It was wildflower wonderful to learn that so many of these sites are near me, in the North American West. I hope to reduce my harm to environment so that these beautiful flowers will continue to naturally grow, worldwide. This is a gorgeous coffee table book, which inspires me frequently on days that are ho-hum and blah.
A perfect daydreaming book for journeys to come and imaginary journeys. Gorgeous photos, useful information on when to go, and somewhat random but always enticing information on the areas.
One site for Canada, the third largest country in the world?
