My edition is a 1997 version of this classic guide to wildflowers. And it is amazing!

My 2001 copy is lovely, but some of the photos are just poor quality. Wild Madder, for example, is blurry (as are many), while the Hoary Mountain Mint looks as if it was taken at night with flash! I could take higher-quality photos, as could many casual photographers. Other than the occasional bad photo, it's a good guide for those out in the field in need of a reference.

A very detailed informative book that is invaluable for wildflower enthusiasts. I have used this book many times in locating and picking the right flowers for my home garden. My only wish is that more greenhouses and garden centers carried more wildflower varieties. A definite keeper for nature lovers.

National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Wildflowers: Eastern Region by National Audubon Society (Alfred A. Knopf 2001)(582.13). This is a useful field guide to identify wildflowers in the eastern United States and Canada. My rating: 7/10, finished 2005.

Always handy. My copy is getting dogeared, but there is plenty of duct tape to go around!

Ditto what I said for the western region edition. I find there are just as many flowers in this guide as the other, since I am quite central in Canada.
