Best field guide I've come across concerning the Pacific Northwest (but bleeds into many other regions). It's pretty non-traditional- very text heavy, lacking many of the pictures other guides would have. Thus, if you have good ID guides and are looking for more information to back up your ID, this is your book. It is more readable than any other guide I've seen. This book will help in the convergence of all natural disciplines into one interrelated idea of ecology.

Having loved the first edition, I had to get the updated edition as soon as it was published. This PNW reference book describes many of the plants, birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fishes, insects found in the Cascades and Olympics--and does so with great heart and gentle good humor. And hey, Daniel Mathews, it's about time for another edition!
Awesome! A field guide that is not just plants! Also, animals, tracks, mushrooms, lichen, geology (?!!) I only wish it was small enough to take into the woods more often, but then it would need an accompanying magnifying glass.
goodreads needs a "reference" shelf added to "currently reading" "read" and "to read".
excellent guide to my local mountain wilderness
