If you want one book to bring on hikes or just in your backyard to identify animals and plants, this would be it. Sure, it only has the most common animals and plants, but the photos are great and it has the most common species you're likely to see.

If you're interested in specific wildlife, like cactuses or insects or fish, you're better off getting a specific book, but if you just want to know what some common plants and animals are, this is a great book. We are in Albuquerque, though this boo

Finding a copy of this treasure at a wonderful thriftstore in Sedona was the cherry on top of an already delightful trip. Until finding it, my only sorrow of the adventure had been my near-total ignorance of the desert flora that was on spectular springtime display.

My partner and I used this book to identify flora on our trip to Zion, Escalante, and Arches. We had a great time looking at leaves and comparing them to the pictures in the book. Our favorites were the Fremont Cottonwood and the Arizona Walnut. We also learned how to classify different trees by their crown shape, bark color and texture, and leaf shape.
