This book is a pretty good overview of Arizona's plant species, but it is not as comprehensive as it claims (how could it be?). The organization is poor- lots of cross-referencing can be required just to look up a plant. The pictures are close-ups of flowers, and often give no indication what the plant looks like when not blooming- especially frustrating for the desert plants. I have found this book more helpful in mountainous areas than deserts, and for wildflowers more than for shrubs.
Still, a good, sturdy book, and a fine complement to the other 6 plant books in your pack.
